 SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT) says concrete pavement repair is scheduled to begin Monday, Oct. 11, 2021, on select on-ramps and off-ramps on Interstate 229. The project takes place on the northbound off-ramp at Minnesota Avenue, exit 3, and at the southbound on-ramp and off-ramp at Benson Road, exit 9. The project consists of concrete pavement repair in which the contractor will be sawing and removing broken concrete and replacing it.
