JAVA, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation says construction work will begin on Highway 271 from the North end of Main Street to the Walworth Campbell County Line starting Wednesday, June 26.


 Starting Wednesday, work will include paving a two-inch asphalt overlay followed by new pavement markings and shoulder rumble stripes.


 Once work begins, travelers should expect delays of 15 minutes when pilot car and flaggers control the traffic. Motorists are asked to slow down through the work zone and be prepared for reduced speeds, suddenly slowing and stopped traffic, as well as construction workers and equipment adjacent to the roadway.


Completion of the construction work is expected to be mid-July.


The prime contractor on this $1.47 million project is Bituminous Paving, Inc. from Ortonville, Minnesota.
