WILMOT, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation says Highway 123 south of Wilmot closed to traffic this morning, Wednesday, July 22.
The closure is required so the contractor can install a pipe culvert across the roadway at mile marker 179 in order to correct drainage issues in the area.
Ronglien & Sons Excavating, Inc, is the prime contractor and expects the work to take about one week, depending on weather.
Motorists will need to find an alternate route during this time and are asked to obey road signs and not drive around barricades for their own safety.
The overall completion date for this project is Aug. 15.
