  • S.D. Highway 19: 23 miles total from S.D. Highway 34 to S.D. Highway 38. The approximate time to complete the chip seal on this route is four days.
  • S.D. Highway 19: 13 miles total from S.D. Highway 42 to S.D. Highway 44. The approximate time to complete the chip seal on this route is three days.
  • S.D. Highway 44: 13 miles total from Parker to Lennox. The approximate time to complete the chip seal on this route is four days.
  • S.D. Highway 11: Two miles total from S.D. Highway 42 North two miles. The approximate time to complete the chip seal on this route is one day.

During the applications, traffic will be reduced to one lane and guided through each project with the use of flaggers and a pilot car. Drivers could see delays of up to 15 minutes.

After the chip seal operation is completed, those same stretches of highway will receive a fog seal within a few days.

Beware of loose gravel for 36 to 72 hours after each day’s chip seal application.

SDOT is advising motorists to travel at 40 miles per hour, or less, in the impacted areas.
