Highway 16B Intersection Improvements In Rapid City


RAPID CITY, S.D. – Crews will begin concrete work at the Elk Vale Road (Highway 16B) / Homestead intersection and drainage modification at Catron Blvd. (Highway 16B)  / 5Th Street intersection in Rapid City beginning Monday, Aug. 12, according to the South Dakota Department of Transportation. 


The concrete work being done on Homestead Street will improve the turning movement at the intersection with Elk Vale Road (Highway 16B). Lane closures will be in place at the intersection with two-way traffic maintained.


Work at the 5th Street intersection is being done to improve drainage. Motorists will experience minimal traffic disruption as work is being done away from the roadway.


Work on both intersections is scheduled to be completed by the end of August.                 


R.C.S. Construction Inc. of Rapid City is the prime contractor on the $172,000 project.
