Interstate 29 traffic back to normal Friday

Travel on Interstate 29 near Brookings will soon return to normal.

The South Dakota Department of Transportation says the two-way traffic zone currently in place will come to an end on Friday, November 11. Traffic will return to utilizing both lanes northbound and southbound on I-29.

Motorists are asked to be alert; as single lane closures may be used at times to wrap up construction activities for the season.

The contractor plans to use single lane closures on I-29 again next construction season, but does not intend to use two-way traffic zones for any remaining work on the project.

Construction of the bridge structure and all grading operations are scheduled to be completed this year, with the surfacing and final project completion scheduled for July 14 of next year.
