 I-90 Eastbound Reconstruction Near Spearfish



SPEARFISH, S.D. – On Monday, April 1, the first phase of a 9-mile reconstruction project will begin in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 90 near Spearfish, according to the South Dakota Department of Transportation. 


Traffic will be reduced to one-lane in each direction and placed head-to-head in the westbound lanes between Exits 10 and 14 (mile markers 9 to 15), with a 14-foot width restriction.


Motorists are asked to watch for slowing traffic, merging lanes, modified traffic patterns for exit on/off ramps, construction equipment and workers. 


The speed limit on that section of I-90 near Spearfish will be reduced to 55 mph, and motorists are reminded that fines are doubled in work zones.


The interim completion date for this phase is July 24 with an overall completion date of Dec. 20.


The prime contractor on the $12.4 million project is Heavy Constructors Inc. of Rapid City.


For further information regarding this project, contact Steve Kamarainen, Rapid City Area project engineer at 605-394-2248.
