FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Project #NH 0016(79)68, PCN 027C
RAPID CITY, SD – Wednesday, July 6, 2016 – Beginning Wednesday July 13, motorists should expect a change in lane configuration at the intersection of Mt. Rushmore Road and Kansas City Street. The current left turn lanes will be temporarily removed to allow for the construction of the center lane at the intersection. This is being done in anticipation of a shift in traffic to the new pavement scheduled to occur the third week in July. At that time, the left turn lanes will be re-established at the Kansas City Street intersection.
Business access on Mt. Rushmore Road will remain open at all times. 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.
