PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation says work to resurface a section of Highway 14 west of Pierre/Fort Pierre will begin April 27.

The milling is expected to take one week, with resurfacing operations beginning on Monday, May 4, depending on weather.


Traffic will be controlled with flaggers and a pilot car during daylight hours. Motorists should expect delays of at least 15 minutes, be aware of suddenly slowing and stopped traffic, uneven lanes and a rough driving surface until work is complete.


The completion date for the project is July 19, 2020.
