YANKTON, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Department of Transportation says work is getting ready to begin on the $5.5 million reconstruction of Highway 50 in Yankton.

The work beginning March 14 includes removing and replacing the current surface from Burleigh Street to Broadway Avenue.

On Monday, crews will install and activate temporary traffic signals at the intersection of 2nd Street and Broadway Avenue for a truck and over-width detour on 2nd Street from Broadway Avenue to Burleigh Street.

Phase one involves reconstruction of the eastbound lanes while maintaining two-way traffic on the existing westbound lanes. Phase two is reconstruction of the westbound lanes while maintaining two-way traffic on the new eastbound lanes.

The final phase includes pouring the center turn lane with one lane of traffic in each direction.
