Mt. Rushmore Road Reconstruction Project Update
Project #NH 0016(79)68, PCN 027C
RAPID CITY, SD – Wednesday, October 26 2016 – Work continues on Mt. Rushmore Road and
the adjacent side streets. On the west side of Mt Rushmore Road minor work items remain
including sodding, pavement marking and miscellaneous cleanup.
On the east side of Mt. Rushmore Road, surfacing work continues from Columbus Street to
Fairview Street. South Street has been paved and is now open. The alley between South Street
and Clark Street has access from South Street. The Clark Street intersection on the east side of
Mt. Rushmore Road is anticipated to be closed next week for surfacing.
Work continues on water main and services and sanitary sewer services from Fairview Street to
Saint James Street. Fairview Street is closed for utility construction from the Mt. Rushmore
Road intersection to the east approximately 150 feet. Surfacing work in this stretch will follow.
Saint James Street is closed for utility construction from the Mt. Rushmore Road intersection to
the east approximately 100 feet. On street parking will be allowed within those blocks east of the
construction limits. Business and residential access on Fairview Street and Saint James Street
will be from Saint Cloud Street.
The project is approximately 67% complete.
Business access on Mt. Rushmore Road will remain open at all times. A “Temporary Pedestrian
Access Route” will be maintained through the project limits. Pedestrians are guided through the
project on the new sidewalk from Kansas City Street to Saint James Street. There are
pedestrian crossings available at Quincy Street, Columbus Street, and Saint James Street.
These crossings may be temporarily removed to allow for installation of water mains and
Motorists are asked to slow down through the work zone and be prepared for: suddenly slowing,
merging and stopped traffic, minor delays, loose gravel, uneven surfaces and bumps, as well as
construction workers and equipment adjacent to the roadway.
