Pickstown - Bridge on U.S. Highway 18


Project Summary:

This is a bridge replacement project for the US 18 bridge over a stream into St. Francis Bay. The bridge is being replaced due to being at the end of its expected lifespan and increased maintenance costs. There will be grading work at this location to improve safety and meet current roadway standards.

Additionally, there will be intersection modifications at the US 18 and SD 50 junction in Lake Andes. By squaring up this intersection, it will make it easier to see oncoming traffic and improve safety.
