MOBRIDGE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation says a chip and fog seal application will be applied to Highway 12 in the Mobridge area beginning Monday, Aug. 21.


The chip seal will take place from the east edge of Mobridge east for 15.9 miles and will take approximately five days to complete with an additional day for the fog seal.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane and guided through the project with the use of flaggers and a pilot car. A delay of up to 15 minutes can be expected while traveling through the work area during daytime hours.

Loose gravel will be present for a period of 36 to 72 hours after each day’s chip seal application. Traffic should travel at 40 mph or the posted speed limit if it is less than 40 mph, during this time frame. The permanent pavement markings are scheduled to be applied within 14 days of completion of the chip and fog seal projects. 

Jensen Rock & Sand, Inc. from Mobridge, South Dakota, is the prime contractor on the $984,000 project.
