YANKTON, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation says work is progressing to repair the flood damaged portion of Highway 48 near the Iowa state line with paving operations starting this week.


The first project to remove the damaged portion of the roadway, regrade and place riprap is substantially complete.


The contractor is expecting to complete the surfacing and have the roadway open to traffic by Sept. 20, weather permitting.


This section of Highway 48 has been closed since mid-March due to flooding and significant damage to the roadway.


Dakota Contracting Corporation from Sioux Falls is the prime contractor on the $214,000 project.
