Sheridan Lake Road Reconstruction Project to Begin Next Week

RAPID CITY, S.D. – Beginning next week, Oftedal Construction will resume work on the Sheridan Lake Road reconstruction project from Victoria Lake Road to the westernmost Spring Creek Bridge.

Access for local traffic will be maintained on Sheridan Lake Road and the road will remain open. There will not be any hard surfacing on the roadway while grading operations are taking place. Thru traffic from Rapid City to Highway 385 is encouraged to consider an alternate route.

Traffic delays may be 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.

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.
