Redesign of Jackson Boulevard in Spearfish Postponed

The Spearfish City Council recently decided to delay the implementation of the Jackson Boulevard redesign in order to avoid three seasons of construction on a major thoroughfare in the city, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. Patches and additional sealants will be applied to the road to maintain it sufficiently until the redesign, projected to now begin in 2019.

The redesign is slated for a stretch of Jackson Boulevard from University Street to Exit 12 and will cost approximately $7-8 million. The project includes updates to the city’s storm drainage, roadway resurfacing, Americans with Disabilities Act compliance updates, safety updates and new streetscape design and beautification.
