Over the next few months, Lawrence County will conduct $3.1 million in road improvement projects, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. Repairs for St. Onge Road came in at $400,000 less than anticipated, which helped facilitate progress on the remaining projects.
Additional projects for the coming months include repaving nearly five miles of Vanocker Canyon at $1.4 million dollars; sealing projects on 5.6 miles of Old Belle Road, 3.5 miles of Acorn Ridge Road, 1.3 miles of Hillsview road, and 1.6 miles of McGuigan Road; graveling projects on 23.4 miles of roads for $550,000 and restriping 85 miles of pavement for $40,000.
