MITCHELL, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation and the city of Mitchell are scheduled to begin reconstruction work on Burr Street from Interstate 90 to the two-lane section south of Walmart in Mitchell on Wednesday, April 11.

The work being completed includes new concrete pavement, installing new water main, installing curb and gutter and constructing sidewalks.

There will be a 10-foot width restriction in place. Over-width and oversize traffic will need to find an alternate route while two-way traffic is maintained in the southbound lanes.

This is the continuation of a multi-year construction project which began last year with the reconstruction of Burr Street from Havens Avenue to Interstate 90.

The interim completion date for this portion of the project is Nov. 16, 2018, with the completion of pavement marking to be completed in 2019.

T & R Contracting from Sioux Falls, is the prime contractor on the $16 million project.
