NEWELL, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation says crews will be resurfacing and striping two bridge ends on Highway 212 east of Newell beginning Monday, Oct. 1.  This work was originally scheduled to begin on Sept. 25.

The Highway 212 project is expected to take two days to complete, depending on weather. Crews will then move to Highway 85 south of Ludlow on Wednesday, Oct. 3, and then on to two locations on Highway 73 north of Faith on Thursday, Oct. 4, with completion expected by Oct. 6.

During paving operations, traffic will be directed through the work zones with the use of flaggers. Motorists can expect up to 15-minute delays, suddenly slowing and stopped traffic, an uneven or rough surface, and construction equipment and workers adjacent to the roadway.

The prime contractor on this $149,400 project is Western Construction, Inc. from Rapid City.
