Main Avenue South Paving Project

The Main Avenue South Paving Project from 8th Street South to 20th Street South will be starting soon.  This project will be constructed by Bowes Construction Co, Inc. and it will be administered and inspected by the local staff of the South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT).  The project will include a milling and asphalt overlay of the street surface, pavement markings, replacement of deteriorated curbs, new accessible curb ramps at each intersection along the project route, and traffic signal upgrades and lane widening at the intersection of Main Avenue South and 8th Street South.  

Bowes Construction will begin the project with the curb ramp installation.  After the curb work and ramps are completed, the contractor will mill the top surface of the asphalt and pave an asphalt overlay over the street area.  The contractor will keep one lane of traffic open in each direction during the milling and paving operations.  In addition, this project will include reconstruction of the Main Avenue South and 8th Street South intersection with new traffic signals and lane widening.  The project includes installing sod in the disturbed areas next to the new curb ramps and curb and gutter, and the contractor will water the sod for 4 weeks after the sod is installed.  Property owners are responsible for watering the sod after that time to help ensure successful growth.     

The project is anticipated to be completed by this fall.   The public should use caution when driving or walking through the project area, especially around work areas under construction.  We appreciate everyone’s patience during the project and we are looking forward to the enhanced Main Avenue South roadway.
