RAPID CITY (AP) - Crews are close to finishing highway projects to improve the well-traveled byways from Interstate 90 through Rapid City and onto Mount Rushmore National Memorial.

The Rapid City Journal reports workers this month are putting the final touches on a $32 million project to rebuild a prime connector for tourists coming into downtown Rapid City.

A three-year, $30 million rebuilding of Mount Rushmore Road is slated for completion early next year. That road is considered the gateway to the Black Hills and Mount Rushmore.

State Transportation Department Engineering Supervisor Steve Palmer says more big construction projects are set to begin in the near future, including repairs of an interstate bridge.
