WATERTOWN, S.D.–Cold temperatures and snow are not conducive to doing road construction work, but that hasn’t stopped crews from plugging away on the Highway 212 project in Watertown.

South Dakota Department of Transportation Engineer Bryce Olson tells KWAT News they’ve been able to pour concrete every day this week, despite freezing temperatures, but there’s still work to get done…

Olson says it looks like it’ll be late November at the earliest before the Highway gets fully re-opened…

J & J Earthworks of Milbank is the contractor on the project, which had a scheduled completion date of October 28th.
