Highway Construction Costing More!

Due to inflation, construction costs have more than doubled 
from 2005 to 2022. Using the SDDOT Construction Cost Index, 
what cost $1.00 in 2005 is now $2.15 in 2022.*


Even though both Federal and State funds have increased,
the SDDOT can buy 11% less in 2022 than in 2005 because
of construction inflation.**


*Based on the SDDOT Construction Cost Index
**Based on the SDDOT Construction Cost Index and State and Apportioned Federal Funding. Unknown Federal Grants and August Redistribution are not included.
