RAPID CITY, S.D. – September 29, 2020 – This week work includes finishing gravel placement through Norseman Lane. Asphalt paving is tentatively scheduled to begin this Wednesday at Albertta Drive, paving toward Spring Canyon Trail. Topsoil placement continues from Spring Canyon Trail to Norseman Lane.
Traffic delays are anticipated to remain approximately 15 minutes during daylight hours as traffic is reduced to a single lane and guided through the work zone with the use of flaggers and a pilot car. Plan accordingly and add 15 minutes, at a minimum, to travel schedules. The pilot car will accommodate school buses to minimalize delays and bus stop locations will be maintained to assure safety of the students. In an effort to maintain the construction schedule and timely completion of the project, work hours will continue to be daylight hours until winter shutdown.
Through traffic is advised to consider an alternate route. 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.
