Canton, SD and Rock Rapids, IA — If your commute or the route you take to get to Sioux Falls involves the road referred to many as “the back way from Larchwood to Sioux Falls”, your trip is taking longer these days. One of the main roads on the route is being worked on.
According to the Lincoln County, South Dakota Highway Department, construction on County 106 between the Spring Creek Golf Course and Tea will have the road down to one lane for the next four or five weeks. Crews are widening the road and installing a traffic light. Lincoln County 106 intersects several important Sioux Falls streets such as Cliff Avenue, Minnesota Avenue, Western Avenue, and Louise Avenue.
It is suggested that perhaps you plan alternate routing for any trips until at least the end of October.
In a related bit of information, the bridge on that route — connecting Lyon County A18 and Lincoln County 135 over the Big Sioux River — is set to be replaced in April, according to Lyon County Engineer Laura Sievers. She says bids on that project and a PCC overlay to K40 or the Steen road will be let in December.
