Houston Street in Lead Slated for Reconstruction

Houston and Pavilion Streets in Lead will soon be reconstructed to allow for better access to the Sanford Lab’s Ross Shaft, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The Lead City Commission approved a resolution to move forward with the project.

Improving Pavilion and Houston Streets will help increase accessible routes to the Ross Shaft. Currently, the most used route is Mill Street, which goes through a residential neighborhood. Reconstructing Pavilion and Houston Streets will alleviate traffic on Mill Street.

The estimated cost of the project is $1.2 million, with part of the funding potentially coming from the South Dakota Department of Transportation’s Community Access Grant Program. The City of Lead applied for the grant, which could provide up to $400,000 toward the improvement project.
