New Intersection Warning System In Spink County

Beadle County

To improve safety, the South Dakota Department of Transportation is installing an Intersection Conflict Warning Systems (ICWS) to improve safety at the intersections of Highway 281 and Highway 20 in Spink County.

 The ICWS is being installed to address the crashes at the intersection by providing drivers on both highways with a dynamic warning of other vehicles approaching the intersection. 

 Vehicles detected on Highway 281 will activate a “traffic Approaching When Flashing” signal to alert drivers attempting to enter the intersection from Highway 20.

 Vehicles detected on Highway 20 will activate a “Traffic Entering When Flashing” sign to alert motorists traveling along Highway 281.

 The ICWS is currently scheduled to become operational on Wednesday, July 18.
