KENNEBEC, S.D. - The South Dakota Department of Transportation says centerline painting on the following highways in central South Dakota will begin on Saturday, Oct. 1.


  • Highway 273 from the south on-ramp with Interstate 90 to the junction with Highway 1806
  • Highway 34 from east of the junction with Highway 73 to west of the junction with Highway 63
  • Highway 83 from the junction with Highway 212 to the junction with Highway 12


The contractor will be grinding five to 10 miles of the new centerline, followed by painting the centerline in each section by the end of each day. Each project is expected to take two to three days to complete.


Motorists are advised crews with three to five vehicles all together will be moving slowly down the road at 10 mph or less in the section of highway they are working on and can expect delays, areas of no centerline and wet paint around the work area during the daytime hours


The contractor for the $226,000 Pierre regionwide striping project is Traffic Safety Services Company of Black Hawk.
