Highway 52 in Yankton from Broadway Avenue to the 8th Street intersection and;

Highway 50L (Cherry Street) in Vermillion from Plum St. to the intersection of West Main Street


Interstate Improvements of Faribault, Minnesota is the prime contractor on the $1.2 million project.


Work is expected to be completed by July 1.
