SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Starting Tuesday, June 1, 2021, the South Dakota Department of Transportation says crews will begin bridge repair on 26th Street over Interstate 29.


During repairs, left turn movements onto the I-29 on-ramps will not be allowed. Two thru lanes will be maintained during bridge repairs in each direction with reduced widths.  Repairs on the bridge are scheduled to be completed by Sept. 10, 2021.


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.


The $5.2 million project will include bridge deck overlays, approach panel replacement, and PCC pavement repair.


Iowa Civil Contracting, Inc., of Victor, Iowa, is the prime contractor for this project.
