WATERTOWN, S.D.–Phase II road construction on U.S. Highway 212 in Watertown will begin next month…

That’s South Dakota Department of Transportation Engineer Bryce Olson.

Phase II will involve a total rebuild of five lanes of Highway 212 between the Highway 81 intersection and 19th Street East, along with new sidewalks and street lights…

It’ll be nearly identical to Phase I construction that occurred in 2019 between Highways 81 and 20…

J & J Earthworks of Milbank will be the main contractor on the nearly $10 million project, which has a scheduled completion date of October 28th, weather permitting.
