Chip sealing scheduled for S.D. Highway 28 and S.D. Highway 324 in Hamlin and Brookings Counties

The South Dakota Department of Transportation says work will begin on Highways 28 and 324 in Hamlin and Brookings Counties on Monday, May16.

The asphalt surface treatment project involves about 13 miles of Highway 28 from U.S. 81 to the east edge of Estelline in Hamlin County, and on South Dakota Highway 324 for about nine miles in Brookings County.

Work on this project will include chip sealing followed by a fog seal and pavement marking. Work is expected to take two to three weeks to complete.

Traffic will be maintained through the work zones with flaggers and a pilot car. Motorists are asked to expect short delays. This type of construction project has the potential of causing vehicle damage such as chipped windshields and broken headlights due to rocks being thrown by high speed oncoming or passing traffic.

Motorist should consider using an alternate route during this construction project.
