SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Starting Monday, May 17, 2021, the South Dakota Department of Transportation says crews will begin pavement repair on southbound Interstate 229 starting from Exit 2 at Western Avenue in the auxiliary lane for ½ mile.


Southbound I-229 traffic will remain open in the driving and passing lanes during the pavement repair work.


The $2.9 million project will include PCC pavement repair and asphalt concrete resurfacing on I-229 northbound and southbound from Exit 1 (Louise Avenue) to Exit 2 (Western Avenue).


Motorists should be prepared for delays. Drivers are asked to be aware of construction workers and equipment adjacent to the driving lanes, and to slow down through the work zone.


Central Specialties, Inc., of Alexandria, Minnesota, is the prime contractor for this project.
