Interstate 90 Eastbound Exit 44 Bridge Deck Overlay


RAPID CITY, S.D. – On Tuesday, Sept. 24, crews will begin work on a bridge deck overlay project in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 90 at Exit 44 in Rapid City.


Work includes guardrail repair, grinding of the bridge deck, concrete overlay and paving of the asphalt approach pads.


Traffic in the eastbound I-90 lanes will be routed onto the on- and off-ramps at Exit 44. The service road under the Interstate at Exit 44 will be closed to all traffic.


A 16-foot width restriction will be in effect for eastbound I-90 traffic in the construction zone and the speed limit will be reduced to 45 mph. Motorists are reminded that fines are doubled in work zones and to be cautious of suddenly slowing and merging traffic.


All of the work is scheduled to be completed in mid-October.


Sioux Falls Construction of Sioux Falls is the prime contractor on this $216,000 project.


For more information, contact Harry Johnston with the South Dakota Department of Transportation at 605-394-1639.
