Napa Road Issues

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

The Yankton County Commission heard complaints yesterday that the trucks hauling concrete, grain or other materials to the Dakota Plains Ag construction site at Napa Junction have not been using approved routes. Commission Chairman Todd Woods says some of that truck traffic may be explained by the fact that alternate routes around construction areas or closed roads have had to be used. Woods says the firm of Stockwell Engineering is responsible for making sure that the contractors on the project are using approved truck routes. Stockwell Engineers says beginning early next month trucks hauling cement to Napa Junction will be running twenty-fours per day until the construction of the facility’s silos is complete.
