MENNO -- The South Dakota Department of Transportation says chip seal applications will be applied to several highways in the southeast area of the state. The contractor will move from one project to the next in the following order:

  • S.D. Highway 18, one mile through the city of Menno. Approximate time to complete this section is one day.
  • S.D. Highway 46, for 6.8 miles, from Highway 25 east to the Menno Road. Approximate time to complete this section is two days.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane and guided through the projects with the use of flaggers and a pilot car. A delay of up to 15 minutes can be expected while traveling through the work area during the daytime hours.
Loose gravel will be present for a period of 36 to 48 hours after each day's chip seal application. Traffic should travel at 40 mph during that time.

The permanent pavement marking is scheduled to be applied within 14 days of completion of the chip seal projects.

The Prime Contractor for the project is The Road Guy Construction, of Yankton.
