ABERDEEN, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation says shoulder widening work has begun on Highway 212 from west of Seneca east for 10 miles.


Work includes setting signs, stripping topsoil and paving asphalt concrete shoulders.


The shoulder widening operations will reduce traffic to one lane with an 11-foot width restriction. Traffic is being controlled with flaggers and pilot car at the earthwork operations and motorists can expect delays.


The expected completion date for this phase of the work is mid-October, with an overall completion date of Nov. 1, 2020.


This is a 21.5-mile project that will be completed over two years. The prime contractor on this $12.3 million project is Loiseau Construction, Inc. of Flandreau.
