WIND CAVE NATIONAL PARK, S.D. - A chip and seal project on U.S. Highway 385 and South Dakota Highway 87 in Wind Cave National Park has been rescheduled to begin Monday, June 14. Work will start on Highway 87 and then move to Highway 385 later in the week or early in the week of June 21. Inclement weather forced the rescheduling of the project.
Crews will be working from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday. Traffic through construction zones will be maintained with flaggers and pilot cars. Motorists can expect 10 to 20 minute delays while work is in progress, and speed limits will be reduced in construction zones. Visitors are encouraged to use caution and be alert for heavy equipment and personnel.
