Project Update 2020-07-07

RAPID CITY, S.D. – July 7, 2020 – Storm sewer installation continues this week moving west from Albertta Drive. Utility relocation activities continue to progress along Sheridan Lake from Clarkson Road to Norseman Lane. Tree removals and cleanup continue this week along Sheridan Lake Road in preparation for future phases.

An updated drone video for Phase 4 of the project has been posted to the Story Map located at:

Through traffic, such as motorists on their way to Sheridan Lake, are advised to consider an alternate route. Traffic delays are 15 minutes during daylight hours, when traffic is reduced to a single lane and guided through the work zone with the use of flaggers and a pilot car. At night there is two-way traffic. The speed limit is 35 mph from Albertta Drive to Victoria Lake Road.

Motorists are asked to be aware of suddenly slowing and merging traffic, changing work zone locations, reduced speeds through the work zone, and construction workers and equipment adjacent to the driving lanes.

Additional information will be provided as phasing, access, and traffic control changes with the progression of the project. To view the entire scope of the project, with the phasing and traffic control plans as well as weekly updates, please visit the project website The public may leave a message at (605)343-3311 with any questions or concerns regarding this reconstruction project.

  1. This is what we are concerned about. This was a short cloud burst with only 1 inlet. I’ve never seen this amount of water since I have lived here. I have a video that I would like to share with you
