Highways 50 and 81 Intersection Reconstruction In Yankton


YANKTON, S.D. – South Dakota Department of Transportation officials announce intersection reconstruction of Highways 50 and 81 near Wal-Mart in Yankton began on March 3, 2014.


Work on both sides of the intersection include removing the existing surface and traffic signals, grading, concrete surfacing, curb & gutter, and new traffic signals.
