Traffic configuration switch scheduled on I-90 near Sturgis

STURGIS, S.D. — A traffic configuration switch is scheduled to take place Monday, Dec. 12 on Interstate 90 from exit 40 to exit 37 near Sturgis.

As part of the Interstate 90 reconstruction project, westbound lane closures will be removed and both lanes of traffic will be open. The exit 37 and exit 40 ramps on the project are currently open.

Motorists should be aware that there will be short, intermittent eastbound and westbound lane closures at exit 37 for the construction of the new bridge support in the median.

The work is part of the second phase of a four-phase project to reconstruct the exit 37 interchange and includes eastbound grading on Interstate 90, paving from west of exit 37 to the Tilford Port of Entry, drainage structure extensions, installation of pipe culverts, installation of a commercial vehicle electronic screening system and the construction of a new port of entry building.

The project is scheduled for completion by Friday, Oct. 27, 2023.
