PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) Motorists who frequent the area near the Euclid and Capitol Avenue intersection will want to note the intersection’s closure for a portion of one day next week. The South Dakota Department of Transportation says crews will place an asphalt overlay at that intersection next Wednesday morning. The DOT’s Pierre Area Engineer Dean VanDeWiele says that busy location will shut down about 8:15 a.m. Wednesday morning and the closure will stay in place for about four hours.
Traffic will be detoured to adjacent streets during the intersection closure. VanDeWiele says the work planned for Wednesday is part of a patching project that has taken place over the past week or so on Euclid Avenue. He says the goal is to complete Euclid patching before traffic patterns change due to the major Garfield Avenue/Truck Route project which starts soon.
VanDeWiele says the patch job and pothole work on Euclid is being done in an effort to preserve the surface of the Avenue for about five more years-as that road segment will be completely reconstructed in about 2020.
The patching at the Euclid/Capitol intersection will wrap up work that has been done on Euclid from Capitol up to Fourth Street.
