Highway 34 reopens near Howes with one lane

A stretch of Highway 34, closed since flooding June 17, reopened Tuesday morning according to the South Dakota Department of Transportation.

The two-and-a-half mile section of Highway 34 is from Howes Corner east.  At both the Howes and Buffalo lake dams, traffic is one lane with stop signs at either end of the gravel surfacing. Drivers will alternate turns getting through the area.

The lane will be 16-feet wide.  Drivers need to treat it like a construction zone, slow down and drive through the area with caution.

The highway will stay at one lane for six to eight more weeks while repairs to the dams are made.

For complete road construction information, visit www.safetravelusa.com/sd or dial 511.
