RAPID CITY, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation says construction will start to install roadway lighting on Highway 16 at the intersection with Neck Yoke Road, near Reptile Gardens, on Monday April 8, 2019.


The roadway lighting is being added to the intersection to improve safety as the intersection has met lighting warrants.


A lane closure will be set up on Highway 16. Neck Yoke Road will be reduced to one lane with flaggers through the construction zone during daytime hours when workers are present.


Muth Electric, Inc. of Rapid City is the prime contractor on this $76,000 project.


Construction is expected to be complete in June 2019.
