PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) The South Dakota Department of Transportation says milling work on U.S. Highway 14B, which is also known as Garfield Avenue or the Truck Bypass, will start tomorrow. The contractor is working today to set up traffic control to place traffic head-to-head in the two existing northbound lanes (east side of the road) from Fourth Street to the bottom of the Truck Bypass. Traffic signals at the Fourth Street/Airport Road/Highway 14B intersection and the Harrison Avenue/Highway 14B intersection will be replaced with stop signs. The DOT is asking motorists to avoid the area during busy travel times and change daily travel patterns so that left hand turns can be avoided, if possible. A 12-foot width restriction is in place. Flaggers will be available at the Capitol Avenue crosswalk during morning and afternoon hours while Buchanan Elementary School is in session. Access to businesses and residences will be kept in place during the construction work. Paving should be done on the truck bypass project by the end of August and the entire project should be complete October 15.
