WATERTOWN, S.D. – Traffic on Interstate 29 between the Peever Exit (Exit 224) and North of Sisseton (MRM 239) will change to two-way traffic starting Saturday, June 16, 2018.


Depending on weather conditions, construction crews will change traffic to two-way on the northbound lanes so they can begin reconstructing the southbound lanes. During construction, the speed limit is reduced to 65 mph.  A 12-foot width restriction will be in place during two-way operations.  Vehicles over 12 feet wide must use the signed over-width detour route.


Work on this section includes overlaying the existing pavement and improving bridge decks and guardrails. The $15 million project is scheduled to be finished by November.
