The state Transportation Commission just released its first list of highway projects to spend the stimulus money. The 100-million-dollar list of shovel-ready projects is just over half of the $189 million allotted to South Dakota. There are some big replace and repave projects, some chip seal and overlay, lots of signs and fences...
...and for Lake County? Highway 34 gets money... for stripes. Item 28 lists $290,000 for restriping 45.7 miles of road in Davison, Gregory, Hutchinson, Lake, Miner, Union, and Yankton counties. (They better be bike lane stripes!)
Lake County receives no mention in any of the other 45 items on the list.
Highway 34 committee? If you want your four lanes to Colman, you fellas might want to get on the horn to Pierre about that remaining $89 million.
