An event featuring some of the Upper Midwest's top high school athletes will have an impact on traffic around one of Sioux Falls' most popular parks this weekend.  

The City of Sioux Falls Public Works Department has announced that beginning Friday (November 12), the outside westbound lane of West 57th Street will be closed to through traffic between Batcheller Lane and Isabel Place.

The 57th Street access to Yankton Trail Park will be configured to only allow right turns in and right turns out to improve traffic flow for the Nike Cross Country Meet.
