FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Project #NH 0016(79)68, PCN 027C
RAPID CITY, SD – Wednesday, September 7, 2016 – A shift in traffic on Mt. Rushmore Road, between South Street and Saint James Street, is scheduled for Friday, September 9. Beginning Friday, the northbound lanes of Mt. Rushmore Road will be closed. Two-way traffic will be routed to the new pavement in the southbound lanes and will remain in these lanes through the project limits (Saint James Street to Kansas City Street). Work in the northbound lanes will begin with surface removal. Eastbound turning movements between Fairview Street and Quincy Street will be limited due to the construction of curb for the new median planters that will be constructed as part of this project.
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.
