Road and Bridge Repairs on the Horizon for Custer County

Road and bridge improvements dominated the discussion during the October 5 Custer County Commission meeting, reports the Custer County Chronicle. $5.2 million dollars will be spent on road resurfacing and bridge improvement projects over the next five years. 

The five-year plan developed out of a requirement written into South Dakota Senate Bill 1, which appropriated funds for the state’s Bridge Improvement Grant (BIG) program. The legislation mandates counties to implement a five-year bridge and road improvement plan in order to be eligible for BIG program funds.

Repairs included in Custer County’s five-year plan include chip seal on Sidney Park Road, a new bridge on Hazelrodt Cutoff, county-wide road resurfacing, and numerous bridge replacement and improvements across the county.
