RAPID CITY, SD – Wednesday, Aug. 9 – 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 Andrew Street will be closed intermittently for surfacing work through mid-August.

Milling and surface removal will begin tomorrow in the northbound lanes of Mount Rushmore Road at Saint James Street and move south to Saint Patrick Street. Installation of sewer lines will begin at Saint Patrick Street and move north while installation of water lines will start at Saint James Street and move south. During milling, surface removal, and installation of sewer and water lines, there will be intermittent closures of intersections on the west side of Mount Rushmore Road from Saint Cloud Street to Saint Andrew Street. Saint Cloud Street and Franklin Street will each be intermittently closed from the Mount Rushmore Road intersection to the east approximately 70 feet. Saint Charles Street will be intermittently closed from the Mount Rushmore Road intersection to the east approximately 135 feet. Saint Andrew Street will be intermittently closed from the Mount Rushmore Road intersection to the east approximately 160 feet. Be advised that more than one street may be closed at the same time.

A Temporary Pedestrian Access Route is being 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 this Friday. Temporary Pedestrian Access Routes are at Fairview and South streets. This is the last update for the project between Kansas City Street and Saint James Street. Any questions can be directed to Ferber Engineering Company, Inc.

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.
