Mt. Rushmore Road Reconstruction Project Update
Project #NH 0016(79)68, PCN 027C
RAPID CITY, SD – Wednesday, September 14, 2016 – Work continues on Mt. Rushmore Road and the adjacent side streets. On the west side of Mt Rushmore Road, walls and steps are being poured along Saint James Street as well as paving asphalt driveways.
On the east side of Mt Rushmore Road, surfacing work continues from Kansas City Street to South Street. Paving from the alley between Quincy Street and Columbus Street to the alley between Columbus Street and South Street is scheduled for late this week. Work is beginning on water mains and services and sanitary sewer services from South Street to Clark Street. Work continues on water and sewer in South Street.
The intersection of Mt Rushmore Road and Clark Street will be closed tomorrow (Thursday) morning around 9 AM for surfacing removals. It will open up later in the day with a temporary gravel surface. While this intersection is closed, access to the alley east of Mt Rushmore Road, between South Street and Clark Street, will be from Seventh Street to South Street to the north alley.
The project is approximately 48% 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, South Street, and Fairview Street. These crossings may be temporarily removed to allow for installation of water mains and grading.
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.
