    SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — Road projects in Sioux City are drawing complaints from a disability rights advocate, who says the construction is making it harder for people with limited mobility.

    The Sioux City Journal reports that the advocacy group Access SUX is asking city officials for better communication when it comes to the projects.

    Don Dew, the group’s leader, says his group has received numerous calls about access problems around the road and sidewalk projects.

    Sioux City Public Works Director Jade Dundas says the city works with disabled people and contractors to make sure access issues are resolved. He says he’s open to more discussions.
