70:01:02:01 - Minnehaha County speed zone rule 70:01:02:01 – A limited speed zone on State Trunk Highway 115 in and around Dell Rapids is being changed and extended following re-design and re-construction of the highway. Under the proposed rule, the speed limit is being reduced from 65 miles per hour (“mph”) to 55 mph on a 1.08 mile segment of State Trunk Highway 115 immediately southeast of the existing limited speed zone. A 35 mph speed zone is proposed for a 1.44 mile segment of State Trunk Highway 115 in Dell Rapids and then a 50 mph speed zone is proposed for a 0.2 mile segment immediately to the west of this 35 mph zone. These changes are supported by speed studies that were conducted during the re-design of the highway and will enhance the safety and function of the highway. 08/24/2017 08/18/2017
70:01:02:44 - Lincoln County speed zone rule 70:01:02:44 – A 40 mph speed zone is being replaced with a 55 mph speed zone on U.S. Highway 18 over Interstate Highway 29 at Exit 62. This change is supported by the results of a speed study, which indicate an increased speed limit is consistent with the safe and efficient function of the highway. 08/24/2017 08/18/2017
70:01:02:67 - Todd County speed zone rule 70:01:02:67 – The speed limits are being reduced on U.S. Highway 18 in and around Mission and the Antelope Community in Todd County. A 35 mph speed zone will be extended an additional 0.58 mile to the east of Mission and a 45 mph speed zone will be extended to the east of the Antelope Community. The reduced speeds will enhance pedestrian and traffic safety following reconstruction of U.S. Highway 18. 08/24/2017 08/18/2017
70:01:02:06 - Brookings County speed zone rule 70:01:02:06 – The speed limits are being changed on U.S. Highway 14 east of the Interstate Highway 29 interchange in Brookings. A 35 mph speed zone will be extended an additional 0.42 mile and then the speed limit will transition to 50 mph for 0.20 mile. These speed limit adjustments are better suited to the roadway geometrics resulting from highway reconstruction. 08/24/2017 08/18/2017
