Road construction between Bowdle to Roscoe scheduled to begin Monday

(KXLG – Watertown, SD) A road construction project is set to begin on Monday, April 22, 2024, as U.S. Highway 12 undergoes a major asphalt concrete paving project stretching from Bowdle to Roscoe. The project, spearheaded by Anderson Western, Inc., a renowned construction company based in Bismarck, ND, is valued at $5.3 million.

The project’s initial phase will involve setting up signs and cold-milling the existing asphalt concrete. This process is crucial before the new paving can be laid down.

However, motorists should be prepared for some disruptions. The construction operations, including the asphalt paving and cold milling, will necessitate reducing traffic to a single lane. Traffic will be controlled with flaggers at the paving and milling closure points to ensure workers’ and public safety. As a result, reduced speeds can be expected near the work zones.

Despite the short-term inconvenience, the project promises long-term benefits for the region’s transportation network. The expected completion date for the asphalt concrete paving is Friday, June 14, 2024. However, the overall project, which likely includes additional roadworks and improvements, is slated for completion by Friday, November 1, 2024.

This project represents a significant investment in the region’s infrastructure, promising smoother and safer journeys for all who travel on U.S. Highway 12.
