The South Dakota Department of Transportation is accepting applications for a grant that offers funding for repair and replacement to roads in communities with populations less than 5,000, according to a state news release. The Community Access Program helps to ensure that heavily traveled roads in small communities remain accessible to the public.
To be considered for funds, projects must not have already been constructed. Applications are due on July 17, 2017 to ensure applicants enough time to design projects ahead of the 2018 construction season. Applications and more information are available on the state’s Department of Transportation website.
