PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT) says work will begin this week (July 29) on a microsurfacing project on Highway 63 from Highway 34 north to Highway 212.


The work includes filling ruts and then placing a thin lift of asphalt material the full width of both lanes.


During the operation traffic will be carried through the work zone with the use of flaggers and a pilot car as needed and motorists should expect short delays and plan accordingly.


Travelers can expect contractor’s employees and trucks working on the road in a fast-moving operation on the project and should be prepared for suddenly slowing, merging and stopped traffic.


The contractor anticipates a late fall completion date with an overall completion date of July 24, 2020.


The prime contractor on this $2.4 million project is Missouri Petroleum Products Company, LLC of St. Louis, Missouri.
