HURON, S.D. – Reede Construction will begin construction on the intersection of Highway 37 & 21st Street South in Huron on Tuesday, May 7.


This segment of the project will be constructed one quadrant at a time. Traffic on Highway 37 will be moved to a two-way configuration in the southbound lanes.


The east side of the Highway 37 intersection will be closed to traffic, so motorists will have to find an alternate route for 21st Street going east. Traffic will remain open west of the intersection on 21st Street.


This $8 million project will reconstruct 1.1 miles of Highway 37 (Dakota Avenue) from 15th Street North to 3rd Street North, add turn lanes to the Highway 14 intersection and reconstruct the 21st Street intersection.


Public meetings for the project will be held Wednesdays at 10 a.m. at the South Dakota Department of Transportation conference room at 901 Dakota Avenue North in Huron. The public is invited to attend to get updates and questions answered.


Thru truck traffic is being advised to take the in-place truck detour due to anticipated high traffic volumes and narrowed lanes.


Drivers are reminded to slow down in work zones and be prepared for suddenly slowing and merging traffic, as well as construction workers and equipment adjacent to the driving lane.


The overall completion date for the project is set for Nov. 1, 2019.
