Closure for Resurfacing B-40 Planned this Summer

A 5.5-mile overlay project will impact traffic this summer on county road B-40, near Kinsey Elementary in Sioux Center to the four-way stop intersection at K-64 north of Orange City. 

Sioux County is resurfacing the aging asphalt with a 6-inch concrete overlay. 

This section of road is planned to be closed to through traffic from May 30 through August.  Only traffic traveling to and from properties along the closed route will be allowed in the construction area.  Sioux County will set up signs to direct traffic around the project on a detour route.

Access for local traffic will be maintained to properties along the project, including Sioux Center Health and Sandy Hollow Recreation Area.

For most of the 5.5 miles, the concrete will be laid on top of the existing asphalt, but the section in eastern Sioux Center will be milled down about 4 inches before the overlay to facilitate driveway connections. The concrete overlay will be the same width as the existing road.

Sioux County Engineer Joel Sikkema said the project contractor will be reaching out to property owners along the project and maintain communication throughout the work.

“If people don’t need to use this road, we ask that they take another route, for safety and to give the contractor room to keep working and get this project done more quickly,” Sikkema said. 

The detour route takes traffic north on K-64 to B-30 (the Middleburg blacktop), then to Highway 75 to Sioux Center.

In addition to this overlay on B-40, Sioux County is also planning three miles of 6-inch concrete overlay on K-42 near Siouxland Energy Cooperative west of Sioux Center this summer. This section will also be open to local traffic only during the project.
