Highway 42 Bridge Reopening





For Immediate Release:  Monday, September 23, 2019

Contact: Rick Brandner, 605-995-8120 

 

 

MITCHELL, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation is working to reopen the James River Bridge on Highway 42 the afternoon of Tuesday, Sept. 24.

 

The bridge was closed in August so a new structure could be constructed over the James River and had a completion date of July 2020.

 

Due to the flooding of the James River, construction crews have done all they can with the high-water levels and the remaining work to replace the bridge will take place during the summer of 2020.

 

The bridge will remain open until work can resume in the summer of 2020.
