From Bob DeSmidt - The City of Sioux City will be hosting an Open House on Thursday, January 4, 2017 at Sacred Heart Church, 5000 Military Road from 4:30-6:30PM. Topic will be "Military Road Reconstruction & Bridge Rehabilitation Project". This project will include the replacement of all pavement, sidewalks, and utilities (water main, sanitary sewer, and storm water infrastructure) as well as replacement of the Big Sioux River Bridge deck. Minor landscaping improvements will also be proposed.
All are welcome to ask questions and give input.
Following is information on a 2018 project the City is planning for Military Road between Riverside Boulevard to and including the bridge over the Big Sioux. Siouxland Trails Foundation is encouraging cyclists to show up to advocate that plans include a trail-width sidewalk along Military Road and also over the bridge itself. This will then provide a direct connection to the North Sioux City Trail which starts on the SD side of the bridge. Long-term we are hoping for a trail along Military Road between Riverside Boulevard and the Perry Creek Trail – even though that may be years away. There also is a planned City trail from Military Road to the Railroad Museum and back to highway 12 and then back to the intersection of Riverside Blvd and Highway 12
