Rejected Wheel Tax Causes Project Delays

In January Pennington County voters rejected a wheel tax from going into effect. KOTA TV reports that because the budget included money from the anticipated wheel tax, three of nine projects for 2016 have been delayed so far.  One of the delayed projects is replacing the bridge at Sharpe Road, south east of New Underwood.  This created a 40 mile detour.  

For more information about current highway projects, visit the Pennington County website.  Visit our news archives to read more about the wheel tax.
