RAPID CITY, SD – Wednesday, Aug. 2 – Surfacing work is being done on the east side of Mount Rushmore Road from Flormann Street to Saint Francis Street. Work on retaining walls, sidewalk, lighting, and landscape will follow.

Work is being done on retaining walls, sidewalk, lighting, and landscape on the west side of Mount Rushmore Road from Saint James Street to Saint Patrick Street. Saint Charles and Saint Andrew streets will be closed intermittently for surfacing work through mid-August.

A shift in traffic, to the new pavement in the southbound lanes of Mount Rushmore Road from Saint James Street to Saint Patrick Street, is tentatively scheduled to start next Wednesday, Aug. 9. After the traffic has been shifted, surface removal will begin in the northbound lanes of Mount Rushmore Road at Saint James Street and move south.

A Temporary Pedestrian Access Route is being maintained on the west side of Mount Rushmore Road from Flormann Street to Saint Francis Street, and the east side of Mount Rushmore Road from Saint Francis Street to Saint James Street.

After the traffic switch, the Temporary Pedestrian Access Route will be maintained on the west side of Mount Rushmore Road from Flormann Street to Saint Patrick Street, on the east side of Mount Rushmore Road from Saint Patrick Street to Saint Andrew Street, and on the west side of Mount Rushmore Road from Saint Andrew Street to Saint James Street.

Pedestrian access between Clark and South streets is on the west side of Mount Rushmore Road until handrail installation is completed, which is anticipated to be done by Aug. 11. Temporary Pedestrian Access Routes are at Fairview and South streets.

Business access on Mount 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.

Public progress meetings are held every Wednesday at 8 a.m. at The Rushmore Hotel for the project between Saint James and Flormann streets. Project information is available at http://www.mountrushmoreroad.com. For questions, the public may contact Debby Heisinger at Ferber Engineering Company Inc. by phone (605) 343-3311 or email@ferberengineering.com
