S.D. Highway 37 Closure Temporarily Extended to 5th Street Intersection in Huron

HURON, S.D. –  On Monday, July 8, 2024, the closure currently in place on S.D. Highway 37 (Dakota Avenue) through Huron will be extended through the north side of the 5th Street intersection. The closure will be in place on Highway 37, both northbound and southbound, from Market Street south to 5th Street. Two separate marked detours for truck traffic and vehicle traffic will be in place to guide motorists around the work zone. Highway 37 will remain open to traffic south of 3rd Street while the closure is in place.

This closure is part of a larger project on Highway 37 that consists of grading, paving, storm sewer, curb and gutter, traffic signals, and lighting through the city of Huron from 9th Street South to 3rd Street North. The city of Huron’s utility and streetscape project will run in conjunction with the state project.

The primary contractor on this $19 million project is BX Civil & Construction, Inc. of Dell Rapids, SD. The interim project completion date for 5th Street to Market Street is November 2024, with an overall project completion date of August 2025.
