The I-90 and Cliff interchange in Sioux Falls has been under construction since April and Thursday a special visitor from Washington D.C. came to check up on the progress.
The US Department of Transportation's Federal Highway Administrator, Victor Mendez, joined members of the South Dakota Transportation board for a tour of the construction project.
The interchange's first overhaul in more than 50 years is being completed with the assistance of $15.5 million in federal highway funds.
Mendez says reconstruction projects like these not only improve safety, but extend the life of the highways and roads we depend on every day.
The expected completion date of the reconstruction project is November of this year.
