SIOUX FALLS (AP) -- The South Dakota Department of Transportation is scheduled to begin a $3.5 million project to rebuild Highway 17 through Lennox on Monday.

SIOUX FALLS (AP) - The South Dakota Department of Transportation is scheduled to begin a $3.5 million project to rebuild Highway 17 through Lennox on Monday.

Crews will begin milling the existing road surface from the north city limits to Highway 44. During this work, the road will be open with flaggers controlling traffic around the milling operation.

After the milling process has been completed, the contractor will close Highway 17 from the railroad tracks to Highway 44 and begin reconstructing the south half of the project. The work will close the road for about 12 weeks, but access to business and residences will be maintained.

The project is scheduled for completion by October.
