DEADWOOD, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation says crews will be installing traffic control to close the outside northbound lane on Highway 14A and Deadwood Street from Highway 14A to Siever Street on Wednesday, May 8.


The signals at the Highway 14A and Deadwood Street intersection in Deadwood have been removed and Highway 14A traffic will free-flow through the intersection.


Drivers are asked to proceed with caution through the work zone. Alternate routes for pedestrians will be designated.


Work on the project includes concrete pavement repair, ADA curb ramp upgrades, storm sewer and traffic signals. The project area is primarily in Deadwood Street adjacent to the intersection with Highway 14A and is being completed in conjunction with work on Deadwood’s Outlaw Square.


Traffic will be controlled with lane closures and two-way traffic conditions when crews are working. Motorists should allow extra time for your commute and be prepared for suddenly slowing, stopped and merging traffic, as well as construction workers and equipment adjacent to the driving lane.


This phase of the project is scheduled to be completed by the July 20, 2019.


The prime contractor on this $493,000 project is Heavy Constructors of South Dakota, Inc. from Rapid City.
