Spring construction season is swinging into full gear across the region, and several state Department of Transportation projects have already begun, which could cause driving delays.

A $400,000 culvert-replacement project on Pennington County Highway 1416, 6 miles east of New Underwood, starts Monday. The roadway will be closed to through traffic and a detour route created.

Work has begun on sidewalk curb-ramp upgrades, traffic-signal upgrades and pavement markings on U.S. Highways 16, 16A and 16B in Hill City and Custer. Stanley J. Johnsen Concrete of Raid City is in charge of the $1,033,279 project.

Border States Paving of Fargo, N.D., has started work on a $8,309,390 project on U.S. Highway 18 between Edgemont and Hot Springs. The 20-mile project will reduce traffic to a single lane. A pilot car will guide traffic through the construction zone.
