SIOUX CITY | The Sioux City Council on Monday will vote on construction documents for a street reconstruction project on Morningside Avenue. 

The project, anticipated to begin May 1, will bring new paving, sidewalk, driveways and utilities to the street from South Nicollet Street to South Lakeport Street, including the Morningside-South Lakeport intersection. 

The project will include four phases and is anticipated to take 125 work days. 

City documents say staff have met with the Morningside Days Parade Committee to coordinate the parade route around the project. Staff say the route will begin at the intersection of South Nicollet Street and Morningside Avenue and travel west on Morningside outside of the construction area. The city will hold a public meeting once it awards a contract. 

If the council approves the documents, the project will go out for bid in March. 

The city has been working with DGR Engineering for the project design. 

In mid-September, city staff had come before the council for feedback on a plan that would have also included a transition from four-lane to three-lane traffic on Morningside Avenue for the half-mile stretch between the South Lakeport Street intersection and South St. Aubin Street, as well as the addition of reverse-angle parking on the street's south side.

Those plans received pushback from businesses and residents last year, and the city redrew the plans to reconstruct the street as normal.
