YANKTON, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation says chip seal and fog seal applications will be applied to several highways in the Yankton Area of the state beginning Monday, Aug. 13, and will move from one project to the next in the following order:

  1. Highway 44 - 14 miles, from the junction of Highway 37 to the intersection of 424th Avenue. Approximate time to complete the chip seal on this section is 1.5 days. The fog seal will take another day to complete.
  2. Highway 50E - 10 miles, in the east bound lane from just east of the Yankton/Clay county line to the beginning of the Highway 50 bypass near Vermillion. Approximate time to complete the chip seal on this section is 1.5 days. The fog seal will take another day to complete.
  3. Highway 50 - 14.5 miles, from the end of the divide south of Tabor to just west of the Highway 81 intersection in Yankton. Approximate time to complete the chip seal on this section is three days. The fog seal will take another two days to complete.
  4. Highway 314 - 3.8 miles, from the intersection of Highway 50 to just west of 9th Street in Yankton. Approximate time to complete the chip seal on this section is one day. The fog seal will take another day to complete.
  5. Highway 46 - 6.5 miles, from the Highway 25 intersection to one-half mile east of 430th Avenue. Approximate time to complete the chip seal on this section is one day. The fog seal will take another half day to complete.
  6. Highway 37 - 12 miles, from Highway 50 to the intersection of 291st Street. Approximate time to complete the chip seal on this section is 2.5 days. The fog seal will take another 1.5 days to complete.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane and guided through the project with the use of flaggers and a pilot car. A delay of up to 15 minutes can be expected while traveling through the work area.

Loose gravel will be present for a period of 36 to 72 hours after each day’s chip seal application. Traffic should travel at 40 mph or the posted speed limit if it is less than 40 mph, during this time frame. The permanent pavement markings are scheduled to be applied within 14 days of completion of the chip and fog seal projects. 

The Road Guy Construction Company, Inc. from Yankton is the prime contractor on the $1.7 million project.
