DEADWOOD, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation says crews are closing three of the five lanes on Highway 14 and installing traffic control creating a two-way traffic situation today.


The signals at the Highway 14A and Dunlop Avenue intersection in Deadwood will be shut off and covered. A stop sign will be placed on Dunlop Avenue, and Highway 14A traffic will free-flow through the intersection.


Drivers are asked to proceed with caution through the work zone.


Work on the project includes city utility improvements, concrete pavement repair, milling and asphalt resurfacing, ADA curb ramp upgrades, storm sewer and traffic signals. The 1.42-mile project begins at Tin Lizzie and proceeds east to the Amish Furniture and Gifts store.


Traffic will be controlled with lane closures, two-way traffic conditions and concrete barriers when crews are doing utility work. Motorists should allow extra time for your commute and be prepared for suddenly slowing, stopped and merging traffic, as well as construction workers and equipment adjacent to the driving lane.


The project is scheduled to be completed by the Nov. 22, 2019.


The prime contractor on this $1.85 Million project is Simon Contractors of South Dakota, Inc. from Rapid City.
