The South Dakota Department of Transportation began work on a reconstruction project for Highway 115 and to replace a bridge over the Big Sioux River just south of Dell Rapids on Monday, April 4th. Once the bridge is removed during the project, traffic on Highway 115 from Centennial Place to Quarry Road will be detoured to 3rd Street to Garfield Avenue to Centennial Place. Signs will be in place to direct the traffic.
The entire reconstruction part of the project on Highway 115 also includes grading, storm sewer, structure work, and concrete pavement surfacing from Quarry Road to 248th Street. Traffic will be maintained through this portion of the project, however, motorists are encouraged to use the suggested detour of Minnehaha County Highway 114 (250th Street) to Interstate 29 (Baltic Exit 94) to Highway 115 (Dell Rapids Exit 98).
The anticipated completion of the $8.3 million project is early November. The prime contractor for the project is Reede Construction, Inc. of Aberdeen, SD.
