Projects on Highways 73 & 20 in Perkins County To Begin


FAITH, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation will begin a 44-mile asphalt concrete resurfacing and shoulder-widening project on Highway 73 and Highway 20 in Perkins County on Monday, April 8.


The 36-mile project on Highway 73 will start at the junction with Highway 212 and move north to the north junction with Highway 20.


On Highway 20, work will begin at the south junction with Highway 73 and move east eight miles to the Ziebach County line.


Traffic will be reduced to a single lane with an 11-foot width restriction, flaggers and a pilot car.
