Bridge Deck Work to Begin in Midland


MIDLAND, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation will begin replacing the Highway 63 bridge deck over the Bad River in Midland on Monday, April 1.


The bridge will be reduced to one-lane with a 10-foot-width restriction, and traffic will be controlled by temporary signal lights.


The new bridge deck will be formed during two concrete pouring sessions. The full-width of the bridge will be closed for about three days for each concrete pour, and motorists will need to find alternate routes.


Additional information will be provided when construction necessitates full closing of the bridge deck.


The prime contractor on the $1,586,864 bridge project is Heavy Constructors of Rapid City.


Completion date for the work is Oct. 4.


For more information, contact Dean VanDeWiele with the South Dakota Department of Transportation at 605-773-5294.
