The Sioux City Transportation Engineering Department conducted a study to determine the need for improvements to reduce accidents and congestion on Hamilton Blvd. Hamilton Blvd is the major north/south arterial serving the north side of Sioux City and in 1973 carried 12 0000 vehicles per day. The safety study showed that over a three year period, ending December 1972, motorists experienced a total of 186 accidents at the intersection of W. 19th and Hamilton and between W. 28th St. and Stone Park Blvd. Over half of these accidents involved left turning vehicles. Traffic accidents were expected to increase further after the opening of a new section of the route which would connect Interstate 29 with the northern sections of Hamilton Blvd.
