NEWELL, S.D. – On Tuesday, Sept. 5, the South Dakota Department of Transportation will begin making repairs to the box culvert on Highway 212, about 26 miles east of Newell. 

Traffic will be reduced to one lane and controlled with stop signs. A 12-foot width restriction will be in place at this location. The repairs are anticipated to be completed in approximately three weeks. 

Motorists are asked to slow down in work zones and be prepared for suddenly slowing and stopped traffic, as well as construction workers and equipment adjacent to the roadway.

The prime contractor on this $144,000 dollar project is Quinn Construction, Inc. from Rapid City. 

The overall completion date for the project is Oct. 27, 2017.
