Work To Begin On Interstate 90 Near Wall 


RAPID CITY, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation advises motorists that crews began work on Interstate 90 near Wall from east of Exit 110 to Exit 121 on Sept. 4.


The effort includes construction of median crossovers, ramp detours, and shoulder widening in preparation for a 2013 project to reconstruct an 11-mile segment of eastbound I-90 near Wall.


Traffic during construction will be reduced to one lane at times in both the eastbound and westbound directions.


The speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph when workers are present and motorists should watch for suddenly slowing and merging traffic.



Loiseau Construction is the prime contractor on the $4.6 million project.



For more information, contact Brenda Flottmeyer with the Department of Transportation at 605-394-1638.
