RAPID CITY, S.D. – November 19 – Work this week includes mainline concrete pours as well as concrete tie-ins at the west end of construction. The contractor is also concrete paving at the Cross Street intersection. Asphalt paving is scheduled for next week on Cross Street. Access to Oshkosh Street and Cross Street is from Canal Street. Access to the Omaha Street Plaza is from 12th Street.
Early next week traffic on Deadwood Avenue, between Cement Plant Road and Krebs Drive, will be shifted to the outside driving lanes so the middle lane can be paved. There is a 10-foot width restriction though the construction work zone. Business access on Omaha Street will remain open at all times. Left-hand turns onto Omaha Street are discouraged to allow for continued flow of traffic. Motorists are asked to be aware of suddenly slowing and merging traffic, changing work zone locations, reduced speeds through the work zone, and construction workers and equipment adjacent to the driving lane.
