SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Orange barrel season in Sioux Falls is kicking off with two projects on Interstates 29 and 229.

The South Dakota Department of Transportation says the projects will completely reconstruct about three miles of I-29 from north of Tea Exit 73 to north of 57th Street, and about one mile of I-229 from the I-29 interchange to just west of the Louise Avenue exit, including on and off ramps.

The first part of construction is scheduled to begin Monday, when northbound vehicles on I-29 from north of the Tea Exit to north of 57th Street will be redirected to the temporary pavement and bridge that was built in 2015.

The entire $33.8 million project is expected to be completed in early November.
