Highway 50 Reconstruction to Resume


YANKTON, S.D. – According to the South Dakota Department of Transportation, work has resumed from Vermillion to Gayville on the Highway 50 westbound lane reconstruction project that was started last year.


The work is expected to be finished in about six weeks.


Remaining to be done is final surfacing of the median crossovers, sealing of the concrete joints, placement of the pavement markings, and erosion control. In addition, asphalt patching will be done to the eastbound lanes of Highway 50 between Vermillion and Gayville.


Beginning today (Monday, May 6) traffic will be routed around the work areas with lane closures in both the westbound and eastbound lanes.


Knife River Midwest of Sioux City, Iowa is the contractor on the $13.2 million project.
