RAPID CITY, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation says work is scheduled to begin Monday, April 9, at the intersection of Highway 16 and Catron Boulevard in Rapid City.


Work being done includes median modifications, lighting, signals and pavement markings to add a second left turn lane for westbound traffic on Catron Boulevard turning left towards Mount Rushmore.


Motorists will see crews working in the median on the north side of the intersection installing a footing and electrical conduit for a new signal pole that will be installed later in the month.


Driving lanes will be reduced to one in each direction on Catron Boulevard in conjunction with the traffic control set up for the city resurfacing project on Catron Boulevard heading west from Highway 16.


Muth Electric, Inc., of Rapid City is the prime contractor on this $280,000 contract.  The overall completion date for the project is May 18, 2018.
