BELLE FOURCHE, S.D. – Crews will begin repairing culverts on Highway 85 between the junction of Kinghorn Road in Butte County and the junction of Old Highway 85, beginning the week of June 18, 2018.

The work will consist of culvert repairs, culvert replacements and the construction of a traffic diversion at Hay Creek. 

Highway 85 will be reduced to one lane at the culvert replacement locations with traffic controlled by stop signs.  Motorists can expect minor delays, suddenly slowing and stopped traffic, uneven or rough surface, and construction equipment and workers adjacent to the roadway.

Asphalt resurfacing will be done on this stretch of highway and through the City of Buffalo this fall.

The prime contractor on this $8.6 million project is Border States Paving, Inc. from Fargo, North Dakota. 

The overall completion date for the project is July 19, 2019; however, the contractor plans to complete the work this year.
