Douglas Street Resurfacing Project
The City of Sioux City Engineering Division announces the beginning of the 2020 Resurfacing Project – Phase I (3rd Street to 6th Street and 8th Street to 18th Street) for the 2019 construction season. The contractor plans to begin construction on or about April 29, 2019.
This project will replace sidewalk ramps, storm sewer inlets, manholes, and pavement. The contractor will begin working primarily on sidewalks and inlets during the month of May. Starting in June, the contractor will mill away the existing asphalt overlay and replace it with new asphalt. During this process, the street will be closed to vehicular traffic. Finally, the contractor will reconstruct manholes and reseed disturbed areas. During each step of the construction process, the work area will be closed to through traffic with detour routes provided to maintain vehicular access to the area. The project should be complete in August of 2019, weather permitting.
Motorists are advised to reduce speed, drive cautiously, and obey all traffic control signs regarding this closure.
