Work On Phase 2 Of Highway 75 In Sioux Center To Start Before Phase 1 Is Complete

Sioux Center, Iowa — Will crews begin work on Highway 75 again soon in Sioux Center? Signs point to “yes.” But maybe not in the way you were expecting.

Last fall, in late November, Sioux Center officials received word from contractor Godberson-Smith that the northbound lanes of the highway near Walmart would not be paved before winter.

Motorists are hoping the lanes get paved soon and that the contractor has a chance to catch up as more work is planned for this year. But it looks like they’re going to start with the next phase first, and then finish up what they had hoped to have done last year.

The Sioux Center City Council received a report Monday that work to complete phase 1 reconstruction from 20th Street South to 13th Street South will begin in early April.

However, in the meantime, the contractor is going to start on the next phase. They reported that construction will soon start on the second phase of the Highway 75 reconstruction project.  Message boards will be posted indicating a detour to avoid the construction area that begins at 13th Street South, moving north, with the goal of completing reconstruction at 2nd Street South by the end of this year.  Phase 2 work is scheduled to begin the last week of March – weather permitting.
