Sanborn County - S.D. Highway 37

Project Summary: 

This eight-mile resurfacing project will reconstruct SD Highway 37 from the SD 34/SD 37 junction north to one mile south of SD Highway 224. The existing asphalt surfacing will be removed, shoulder edge drains will be installed, and the old concrete pavement below the asphalt will be rubblized before a total of 4” of asphalt concrete is paved on top. Traffic will be routed to the southbound lanes while the northbound lanes are constructed, then switched to complete the same process to construct the southbound lanes. Traffic widths will be limited to 12’ for safe travel through the project.
