Renderings of proposed changes to Jackson Boulevard in Spearfish were recently presented at the a public meeting in the Spearfish City Hall Council Chambers, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. Proposed changes included turning lanes, bicycle lanes, landscaped medians and more.
This year is designated as a design year for the Jackson Boulevard Street and Utility Improvement Project. The project includes just over one mile of Jackson Boulevard from Exit 12 on Interstate 90 to University Street. In April, the Spearfish City Council approved the project on a vote of 5-1 at an estimated cost of $9 million. Construction is projected to begin in 2018, with a completion date slated for June 2019.
