VERMILLION, S.D. | Asphalt pavement overlay work is scheduled to begin this week on the eastbound lanes of South Dakota Highway 50 from Vermillion to Interstate 29.
Work involves milling the existing asphalt surface, then overlaying with new asphalt. Traffic will be reduced to a single lane, and the speed limit has been reduced to 45 mph through the work zone.
Workers also will be completing an asphalt overlay project on Highway 50 east of Interstate 29 to the South Dakota Highway 11 intersection.
The $3.8 million project is expected to be finished by Sept. 1.
