public to check out project info/updates

RAPID CITY, SD—With unseasonably pleasant weather conditions, various construction projects are or will be getting underway in the city.  Residents can keep updated on construction public service announcements by visiting the City’s website at .

            For several years, the City’s home page contains a ‘Featured Content’ section which includes road construction updates.  Staff with the City’s Public Works Department update the content whenever new projects are scheduled or current projects are updated.  The site includes a road construction map, details on specific projects that include start and anticipated completion dates for each project, locations of the project, traffic impacts, specific maps to each project, contractor information and details to the construction.

            “The road construction updates feature on the City’s website is a great way for the public to stay informed and updated on the various construction projects going on in the community,” said Interim Assistant City Public Works Director Shannon Truax.  “We are already seeing an uptick in construction activity and as the weather remains nice, more projects will be getting started or resuming after taking the winter season off.”

            Truax said the website feature is a great resource for the public.  The City also issues public service announcements on individual construction projects which are issued to media outlets and posted on the City’s social media platform.

            “The public can check on when projects are scheduled to start and to be completed, areas to avoid or detours to take in getting home or to particular destinations in the community, and specifics as to what’s being done on specific construction projects,” said Truax.  “It’s a great resource with important information at your fingertips.”

            Each construction project detailed in the road construction updates includes telephone contact information if there are questions about the project.
