FORT PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation says work will begin on an asphalt resurfacing project on Highway 14 near Fort Pierre on Monday, May 14.


The project limits are from the junction of Highway 1806 at the city limits of Fort Pierre west 24 miles in Stanley County.


Cold milling of the top half inch of existing asphalt surface will be followed by blade leveling and strengthening the asphalt prior to placing two inches of asphalt.


The contractor will start by removing the weigh in motion site with milling to begin May 14 and paving starting on May 21, depending on weather. The bridge deck chip seal will be done after paving operations are complete.


Traffic will be guided through the work zone by flaggers and a pilot car. During the bridge deck chip seal, traffic will be controlled with stop signs at both ends of the structure.


Motorists can except delays and are asked to slow down through the work zone and be prepared for suddenly slowing and merging traffic, as well as construction workers and equipment adjacent to the driving lane.


The completion date for the project is Oct. 26, 2018, but the contractor anticipates the bulk of work to be complete by July 4.


The prime contractor on this $4.7 million project is Anderson Western, Inc. of Bismarck, North Dakota.
