Pierre, S.D. –Beginning Monday, September 14, the southbound lanes of Harrison Avenue from Wells Avenue to Sioux Avenue will be closed for underground water main work. These lanes will remain closed until the water main is replaced and the road above repaired.
Throughout the closure, local traffic can access South Harrison by taking Monroe to Sioux Avenue, and Sioux Avenue east to South Harrison. Detours will be marked.
Businesses directly impacted by the detour have been notified.
The City of Pierre maintains more than 100 miles of water main and works to repair damaged water pipes during warm temperatures. Cold weather intensifies damage and can lead to cracking and water main failure.
