Broadway Repair Work To Start In A Few Weeks

Broadway Repair Work To Start In A Few Weeks

The contractor that is repairing parts of Highway 81 in our area began Monday.

The South Dakota Department of Transportation has contracted with Diamond Surfacing to make some necessary repairs which will impact traffic along Broadway Avenue in a few weeks.

Yankton Area DOT Engineer Rod Gall says currently, they are repairing a three-mile stretch of Highway 81 just north of Freeman. He says the exact date when they will move to Yankton is unknown, but it will be in about two weeks…

Gall adds that this project helps increase the longevity of the road…

Broadway from the Discovery Bridge to 31st Street will be reduced down to two lanes for a duration of this project. Gall is encouraging Yankton residents to prepare now for the project.
