Construction has begun along South Kiwanis Avenue which has also led to lane closures on 49th Street. 

The outside westbound lane of 49th Street between Elmwood Avenue and the Big Sioux River Bridge will be closed to allow construction crews to perform street repairs. The center turn lane of Kiwanis Avenue from 49th Street to 41st Street will also be closed to allow construction crews to perform street repairs.

The meat of the project begins on the southern end of Kiwanis Avenue as the street will be slightly wider with new curb installed.

This work is expected to be completed in approximately two weeks.  Two-way traffic will be maintained and channeled around the work area.  Expect delays as equipment, workers and traffic will be in a very tight space.
