BROOKINGS, S.D. – The southbound on-ramp at I-29 Exit 132 near Brookings will close for about 21 calendar days. The closure is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, Aug. 1, 2017.


Closure of the ramp will allow crews to regrade and pave the ramp. Signs will be in place routing traffic to Exit 133.


Traffic is also reminded that the newly completed north side of the intersection of 25th Avenue and 6th Street is a right in, right out intersection and therefore left turns onto and off the north side of the intersection are not allowed. 


The public is invited to attend weekly meetings to discuss progress and sequencing.

Meetings will be held every Thursday at 9 a.m. at the Department of Transportation building located at 2131 34th Ave. in Brookings.


Interim completion for the project is Nov. 3, 2017, which includes Phases 0-2.  Overall field completion date is June 30, 2018, which includes Phase 3.
