Mt. Rushmore Road Reconstruction Project Update
Project #NH 0016(79)68, PCN 027C
RAPID CITY, SD – Wednesday, June 22, 2016 – Clark Street is currently closed for utility work. Fulton Street is closed for surfacing work. South Street and Columbus Street intersections are open. Black Hills Power has completed work in the outside southbound lane of Mt Rushmore Road between Saint James Street and Saint Patrick Street; that section is now open.
Water, sanitary sewer, and storm sewer installation continues along Mt. Rushmore Road between Clark Street and Fairview Street. Roadway surfacing continues between Kansas City Street and Fulton Street.
Business access on Mt. Rushmore Road will remain open at all times. A “Temporary Pedestrian Access Route” will be maintained on the east side of Mt. Rushmore Road through the first phase of construction. Left-hand turns across traffic are discouraged to allow for continued flow of traffic.
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.
