New Road Work Begins Next Week 13 Jul 17

As the road construction season continues, motorists are asked to be on the watch for crews, pilot cars and flaggers.

County Correspondent Dave Burns  spoke with Pennington County Engineer Mike Flaagan at this week’s regular meeting of County Commissioners.

Flaagan says work on Pennington County Road 8, and Pennington County Road 13 should be completed by the end of the week, weather permitting. Flaagan says work on County Road 18, east of the MEC Center should begin early next week.

Flaagan asked County Commissioners Tuesday to a hire Houston Engineering to survey Mark BLVD and study County State Aid Highway 7, planning a crossing over the Red Lake River.

As work continues to move forward on area roads, commuters should plan ahead for delays and consider alternate routes.
