SIMPCO, in partnership with the City of Sioux City, has selected SRF Consulting and RDG Planning & Design to conduct a three-part Downtown Transportation Study. The guiding goal of the study is to conduct a comprehensive study for the safe and efficient movement of people, transit, bicycles, vehicles, and other means of transport across Downtown. The three main objectives of the study are:

  • Identify the traffic flow and parking impacts of potentially converting 5th and 6th Streets to two-way streets, and develop recommendations to address impacts.
  • Evaluate the skywalk system and make recommendations for improvements to increase pedestrian usage and enhance the downtown environment.
  • Analyze the pedestrian network of downtown and make recommendations for improvements and connections.
