What's Happening on Hamilton Boulevard?
The Siouxland Interstate Metropolitan Planning Council (SIMPCO) and the City of Sioux City are looking at how to improve traffic flow on Hamilton Boulevard between I-29 on the south to Stone Park Boulevard on the north (study corridor). Based on the findings from the study and City Council Approval, the traffic lights are in the process of being removed at the following locations:
- West 3rd Street & Hamilton Boulevard
- West 8th Street & Hamilton Boulevard
- West 22nd Street & Hamilton Boulevard
The intersections will operate as a two-way stop, with stop signs permanently installed on the respective side roads. At W. 3rd St., the temporary median closure will remain in place to keep the median break closed until a permanent median can be constructed. Access on W. 3rd Street will be right turn only. Through movements and left turns will be prohibited. Left turns from Hamilton Boulevard to W. 3rd Street will continue to be prohibited.
The last phase of the project will take place over the next month, to optimize traffic signal timings at the remaining signals along the corridor.
