 CUSTER, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation says a chip seal and fog seal application will be applied to highways 87, 89, 16A and 18 in the Custer area beginning Friday, May 31.

 

The chip seal will take place on Highway 89 from approximately one mile east of Custer to Sylvan Lake. This will take approximately two days to complete with an additional day for the fog seal.

 

The chip seal will take place on Highway 87 north of Highway 16A (in Custer State Park) to Highway 16 (the Needles Highway).

 

The chip seal will take place on Highway 87 south from Highway 16A (in Custer State Park) to the Blue Bell Lodge.

 

The chip seal will take place on Highway 18 from Edgemont to Highway 89.

 

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 during daytime hours.

 

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 applications.

 

The prime contractor on this $1.4 million project is Simon Contractors of South Dakota, Inc. of Rapid City.
