Grand Avenue Traffic Restriction
PIERRE, S.D. –Beginning next week, traffic on Grand Avenue between Fifth and Eighth Streets will be restricted and controlled by temporary traffic signs.
Between Monday, Sept. 19, and Monday, Oct. 17, the three-block stretch of Grand Avenue will be under construction while the City Street Department removes deteriorating curb, gutter and asphalt and replaces it with new materials. This work follows water main replacement which took place earlier this summer.
The motoring public is encouraged to detour around the construction zone to avoid congestion and should consider parking on adjacent side streets or in alley ways.
The City Commissioner will provide weekly progress updates on the Grand Avenue project during its weekly Tuesday Night Commission meetings. The meetings begin at 5:30 at Pierre City Hall and are broadcast live on Oahe TV Channel 8, HD Channel 608 and online at oahetv.com. Commission meetings are also rebroadcast Tuesdays at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. and Wednesdays at 8 a.m. and 9 p.m.
