PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT) says that traffic over the John C. Waldron Memorial Bridge will experience a temporary lane switch.


The lane closure for eastbound traffic commuting across the Missouri River Bridge from Fort Pierre to Pierre will experience a shift in traffic control as traffic currently traveling in the outside through lane will be shifted to the inside through lane.


The closure will be set up Monday afternoon, Oct. 3, 2022, and will be in effect through Tuesday evening, Oct. 4, 2022, when it will be switched back to its current configuration.


Commuters will experience minimal to no delays.
