Contact: Ryan Houdyshell, 605-892-2872

 

REVA, S.D. – Crews will begin asphalt rehabilitation on Highway 79 from the North Dakota border south for 13 miles and on Highway 20 from 10 miles west of Reva to Prairie City beginning Thursday, May 7.

 

The work includes milling the asphalt surface and placing a new asphalt surface.

 

During the milling and asphalt resurfacing, both highways 20 and 79 will be reduced to one lane during working hours with traffic controlled by flaggers and pilot car. Motorists can expect up to 15-minute delays, suddenly slowing and stopped traffic, uneven or rough surface, and construction equipment and workers adjacent to the roadway. An 11-foot width restriction will be in place on Highway 79.

 

The prime contractor on this $8 million project is Anderson Western, Inc. from Bismarck, North Dakota.

 

The project is expected to be completed by June 16, 2020.
