The Madison City Commission approved a request from a Sioux Falls contractor to lay utility connections underneath N. Washington Ave. to connect the future Beacom Institute of Technology building on the Dakota State University campus to the city’s water, sanitary-sewer, and storm-sewer systems.

John Reiser of Journey Construction Professionals met with the city commissioners on Monday to answer questions and provide information about the utility project. Reiser said the construction workers would need to stop through traffic and detour vehicles around the N. Washington Ave. work site for about four days total during two separate work periods.

According to Reiser, the first two-day traffic detour period will take place next Monday and Tuesday when workers will dig into Washington Ave. to connect to the utility mains. The works crews will halt through traffic during the day but they can refill the avenue’s worksite during nonwork, night-time hours and allow traffic through the construction area.

Reiser said the second two-day work period was not yet scheduled. However, he told the commissioners that the pavement repair work would require a shutdown of through traffic from the beginning to end of the repair project.
