RAPID CITY, S.D. – July 16, 2020 – Storm sewer installation continues this week moving west toward Countryside Boulevard. Grading work is being done between Spring Canyon Trail and Norseman Lane. Excavation for, and installation of, retaining walls is in progress. Utility relocation activities continue to progress toward Norseman Lane.
An updated drone video for Phase 4 of the project has been posted to the Story Map located at: https://arcg.is/58fn9.
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. The public may leave a message at (605)343-3311 with any questions or concerns regarding this reconstruction project.
