I-90 Eastbound Reconstruction near Wall


WALL, S.D. – On Monday, April 1, an 11-mile reconstruction project will begin on the eastbound lanes of Interstate 90 east of Wall, according to the South Dakota Department of Transportation.


The $15.7 million dollar project involves removing and replacing the concrete pavement, grading, installing edge drains and new asphalt shoulders on the eastbound lanes of I- 90. 


Traffic will be reduced to one-lane in each direction and placed head-to-head in the westbound lanes with a 16-foot width restriction. 


Motorists are asked to watch for slowing traffic, merging lanes, construction equipment and workers.  The speed limit on that section of I-90 near Wall will be reduced to 65 mph, and motorists are reminded that fines are doubled in work zones.


The Exit 112 eastbound on-ramp will be closed during construction.  Eastbound traffic will be detoured to Exit 110.


All of the work is scheduled to be completed by Nov. 22.  Stanley J. Johnsen Concrete of Rapid City is the contractor.


For more information, contact Auston Harris with the South Dakota Department of Transportation at 605-394-2247.
