The work is all part of a major reconstruction of the intersection at Six Mile Road and Arrowhead Parkway (Highway 42) that will eventually impact one mile of Highway 42 and one-half mile of Six Mile Road.

Work will include grading, curb and gutter, storm sewer, PCC pavement, lighting, signals, permanent signing, and pavement marking.

Arrowhead Parkway will remain open to traffic.

Work on the entire $20 million project is expected to be completed in late September of 2023.

The prime contractor for this project is T&R Contracting of Sioux Falls.
