CUSTER, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation says approach slab replacement and paving will begin Monday, July 30, on the Red Canyon Bridge located three miles east of Edgemont on Highway 18.


Traffic at the bridge site on Highway 18 will be reduced to one lane with a 16-foot width restriction and controlled with temporary traffic signals. Completion of the project is expected by Oct. 19, 2018.


Motorists can expect a short delay with the traffic signal and are asked to slow down and be aware of suddenly slowing and merging traffic, as well as construction workers and equipment adjacent to the driving lane.


The prime contractor on this $457,357 project is Heavy Constructors, Inc. of Rapid City.
