PIERRE - The state Transportation Commission accepted 12 bids totaling more than $8.8 million and rejected one Thursday on South Dakota highway projects.

The commission also adjusted its surface transportation improvement plan, adding a small grant.

Mike Behm, director of planning and engineering for the South Dakota Department of Transportation, said the $12,000 grant "isn't a lot of money." But it does help pay for improved scheduling of projects, Behm said.

Among the accepted bids were the following area projects:

One in Davison, Hamlin, Hutchinson, Kingsbury, Lyman and McCook counties for shoulder wedge improvements.
