Highway 75 Phase 1 Project Awaiting Paving

The east lanes of Highway 75 in southern Sioux Center are ready to pave. Whether that takes place before winter settles in will be determined by weather and when the paving contractor is able to return.

Jayson Lansink, of the lead contractor Godbersen-Smith Construction shared the outlook during the monthly public construction coordination meeting Wednesday, saying the earliest their crew may finish its current project commitment and begin moving back to Sioux Center could be toward the end of November. 

City staff shared an urgency to get the east lanes of the Highway 75 Phase 1 project paved.

“If that’s not paved, it’s going to be difficult for traffic control and safety, and snow removal is a concern,” City Manager Scott Wynja said. “ We’re going to need to have some significant conversations about these items.”

If all mainline paving can’t be completed before winter, the crew may focus on intersection paving, especially at 16th St. S., Lansink said.

Project completion for Phase 1, from 20th St. S. to 13th St. S, is scheduled for 2024, including adding the center turn lane, medians, median landscaping, and final sidewalk/trail connections. 

This is part of the roughly 2.5-mile project to replacing the aging pavement of Highway 75 and rebuild it in an enhanced 4-lane design focused on safety, function, and showcasing Sioux Center’s character. 

Phase 2 of the project, from 13th Street S. to 12th Street N., will take place in 2024-26. 

The Highway 75 redesign is a shared project between the Iowa DOT and the City of Sioux Center.
