BELLE FOURCHE, S.D. – Crews will resume asphalt resurfacing on Highway 85 from the junction of Kinghorn Road in Butte County north to the junction of Old Highway 85 and on Highway 85 through the town of Buffalo the week of June 10. 


In addition to asphalt resurfacing, crews will complete culvert repairs and install rumble strips and new pavement markings.


During the resurfacing operations, traffic will be reduced to one lane and directed through the work zone with the use of flaggers and a pilot car.  Motorists can expect up to 15-minute delays. An 18-foot width restriction will also be in place.


The prime contractor on this $8.6 million project is Border States Paving, Inc. from Fargo, North Dakota. 


The overall completion date for the project is July 19, 2019.
