New traffic pattern coming to First Ave. South and 29th Street

The traffic pattern at the intersection of First Avenue South and 29th Street will change again today because of the ongoing construction.

South 29th Street will be open to traffic on both the north and the south sides of the intersection beginning this afternoon, according to the Fort Dodge city engineering staff.

First Avenue South on the east and west sides of the intersection will be closed to traffic beginning this afternoon.

The area has been the site of major construction since April. New storm sewers are being installed and the intersection is being rebuilt.
