WINNER, S.D. – A segment of S.D. Highway 248 in Lyman County will be temporarily closed on Thursday, May 16, 2024, and Friday, May 17, 2024 to install a new pipe culvert. The pipe culvert is located on Highway 248 approximately one and one-half miles west of the S.D Highway 47 junction at Reliance. 

The closure will be placed from the Highway 47 junction west to the town of Lyman. During this two-day closure, the public is asked to use a detour route on Interstate 90 from exit 248 to exit 241.

Local traffic will be allowed access on this segment during the closure. However, a diversion around the pipe repair will not be installed. Local traffic will not be able to pass through the closure point where the new pipe culvert is being installed.
