Some drivers on the east side of Sioux Falls will be using alternative routes to get where they're going for several days.

Starting Tuesday (October 17), North Cleveland Avenue will be closed from Rice Street to East 10th Street.

The temporary closure will allow crews to perform an asphalt mill and overlay while also replacing the Cleveland Avenue railroad crossing near Rice Street.
