Traffic Signals on Truck Route Operational Again as Work Proceeds on Road Project

Traffic Lights


PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) The South Dakota Department of Transportation says traffic signals on the Truck Route at the Fourth Street/Airport Road intersection and at the Harrison Avenue/Arthur Avenue intersection are now operational. All five lanes of traffic have been opened through those northern segments of the Truck Route on Pierre’s eastside. The DOT says traffic in the portion of the project south of Oak Street will stay head to head in the current northbound lanes, while a new barrier wall and sidewalk are constructed from Capitol Avenue to Buffalo Street. Once that section of the project south of Oak is paved, another layer of asphalt will be added along the entire project. Officials say the paving work on the project should be done by the end of August and the entire Truck Route project will be complete by mid-October. The $10.8 million dollar project is being led by a Minnesota contractor and it includes asphalt paving being done on US Highway 83 in Lyman County from Interstate 90-north.
