The city of Presho signed an agreement with the South Dakota Department of Transportation to install streetlights from the intersection of US183 and Hwy 248 west to the intersection of Hwy 248 and the 304th Ave.

The City is responsible for 18% of the cost of the lighting project, which has been estimated at around $126,000. DOT will fund the reminder. The project will be added to the April 22nd bid letting. Work will be completed before fall of 2005.

According to Mayor Carl Brakke the lighting project is a positive move for Presho, "Its a means to promote our town at minimum cost to the city."

The old light poles will be removed from the service road and the new poles placed on the highway through town.

The City expects to pay for the project with monies from the general fund.

Other city projects to be completed this summer include a new picnic shelter at the city park and an underground sprinkler system at the baseball field. Both, these projects have received funding through the Schoenhard Foundation.

City employees Forrest Hupp and John Uthe took down the old shelter. The city is in the process of obtaining estimates for the construction a new roof, which will run the entire the length of the concrete.

Cross over lanes are being constructed east of Kennebec on I-90 near mile marker 235 in preparation of the rebuilding of 12.4 miles of highway between Kennebec and Presho. Both lanes will be under construction at different times this summer.

Weatherton Construction, a sub-contractor of Border States Construction, the main contractor on the I-90 project, is currently building the crossover and temporary on/off ramps. Some of the materials used in the gravel base of these projects are coming from a large pile of rubblized concrete piled east of Presho near the airport.
