Completed Work:  The Contractor has completed all approach pipe on the south and north sides of the SD Highway 44 work. They have laid fabric and completed subgrade work from Jackson St. to the east end of the project. The Contractor also removed the surfacing on the eastbound lane and turning lane from Subway to Jackson St. They also have built a subgrade for roughly 2,000 feet of the new walk path.

Anticipated Work in September: The Contractor will continue to process the select subgrade and lay fabric, base material, and geogrid from Subway to Jackson St. They will pour the sidewalk and remove the surfacing on the westbound lane from Subway to Jackson St.

9/20/2022: Work is underway on SD Highway 44 in Winner to place new concrete pavement in the west bound lane and center turn lane from Sale Barn Road to the junction of SD 44 and US 18.  Expectations are to have these two lanes fully placed by the end of this week.  Soon thereafter, once the concrete has cured enough to have strength and final work completed on the new driving surface, work will begin to allow for two way traffic to be placed onto these new lanes and utilize this new pavement so we can focus on placing concrete in the new eastbound lane of SD Highway 44 throughout this same segment length.
