HARTFORD, S.D. – On Monday, Aug. 14, 2023, work will begin to widen the road at the intersection of S.D. Highway 38 and Colton Road (464th Avenue). The project will add east and westbound turning lanes on Highway 38 from 464th Avenue east to 465th Avenue.

The intersection of Highway 38 and 464th Avenue will remain open during construction. Traffic will be reduced to one lane at times during construction. Traffic will be controlled by a flagger and pilot car.
