The westbound outside lane over the Pierre-Fort Pierre Bridge is currently closed from the start of the bridge in Pierre through the U.S. Highway 14/83 intersection in Fort Pierre as crews work to reconstruct the intersection in preparation for the new bridge.
Change in Traffic Control
The installation of two-way traffic in the eastbound lanes from the U.S. Highway 14/83 junction in Fort Pierre to Charles Street in Pierre is planned to begin in June 2023. Closure of the westbound lanes is necessary for construction of the new bridge superstructure, berms, concrete paving, and intersection work.
In addition to the two-way traffic configuration, a 10-foot width restriction will also be in effect beginning in June 2023. Over-width vehicles will be directed around the Oahe Dam utilizing S.D. Highway 1806, S.D. Highway 204, and S.D. Highway 1804. The width restriction will remain in place through the entire 2023 construction season.
For the safety of the public and construction workers, commuters should reduce their speed and be on constant alert throughout the project limits. To get email updates or subscribe to the Pierre-Fort Pierre Bridge Newsletter, click here.
