Old SD-61 shield


Alignment: US-12 at McLaughlin to North Dakota border

History and Notes: Designation in place around 1934, linking up with a new alignment of ND-6 north of McLaughlin. This became part of SD-63 around 1944.

Native American Scenic Byway


Segment 1: North Dakota border (ND-6) north of McLaughlin to SD-44 west of Cedar Butte
Segment 2: Norris to US-18 south of Parmlee

Distance: 254 miles overall

Freeway: Belvidere to 7 miles east of Belvidere (co-sign with I-90)

Intersecting Interstates: I-90 at Belvidere and 7 miles east of Belvidere

Multiplexing: Shared alignment with BIA-4 for 1 mile, south of Little Eagle; with SD-20 from 5 miles west of Trail City to 5 miles northeast of Timber Lake; with US-212 from 4 miles east of Eagle Butte to 2 miles west of Eagle Butte; with US-14 from SD-34 to Midland; with I-90 for 7 miles east from Belvidere

Unpaved Segments: 5 miles south of Belvidere to SD-44

History and Notes: A southern portion of SD-63 (mid 1920's) originally ran from Kadoka to Nebraska border along current SD-73. This changed around 1934, when SD-63 was pulled back to end at US-14, and the old southern segment became part of SD-73.

Route extensions were made in the 1960's. Around 1960, SD-63 was extended south to US-16 near Stamford. By 1965, it was multiplexed with SD-40 south from Belvidere, ending west of Cedar Butte. By 1971, it was extended to US-18 near Parmlee, where it remains today.

On the north end, SD-63 originally did not exist between US-12 and SD-8 (current SD-20), and the north end was at Timber Lake. Between 1948 and 1953, the road was realigned to start about 3 miles east of Firesteel. Between 1965 and 1971, the far northern segment was extended south from McLaughlin to SD-20, then west to meet up with the other segment.

New! A resolution in the 2007 legislative session urged the South Dakota DOT to work to connect the two segments of SD-63. Currently the 6.9 mile segment is a county road, which has over 400 vehicles per day pass over it.

New! The segment of SD-63, from US-212 west of Eagle Butte to SD-34, just west of Hayes is part of the Native American Scenic Byway, which runs south to Chamberlain and north into North Dakota.

Black Hills Lake Metigoshe Trail

Alignment: North Dakota border (ND-31) near McIntosh to US-212 east of Dupree

Distance: 68 miles

Multiplexing: Shared alignment with US-12 for a short distance east of McIntosh; with SD-20 for 4 miles west from Isabel

History and Notes: SD-65 originally (mid 1920's) existed in 3 segments; McIntosh to Grand River, Isabel to Dupree, and a southern segment from Kadoka to the Nebraska border south of Martin. The two northern segments were connected by 1932. The southern segment was changed to a part of SD-63 around 1929, and is now SD-73.

Segment beween North Dakota and US-212 was part of the "Black Hills Lake Metigoshe Trail", which extended to Sturgis.



Alignment: Hot Springs (BYPASS US-18) to Nebraska border (NE-2/NE-71) near Ardmore

Distance: 30 miles

History and Notes: SD-71 is part of a multi-state Highway 71, beginning in Hot Springs, SD, and ending southwest of LaJunta, CO. Previously, it was part of SD-87. Renumbering took place in 1962.

Attractions Along the Way: Mammoth Site (Hot Springs)

Alignment: North Dakota border (ND-49) at Thunder Hawk to Nebraska border (NE-61) south of Martin

Distance: 250 miles

Freeway: Kadoka to 8 miles west of Kadoka (co-sign with I-90)

Intersecting Interstates: I-90 at Kadoka and 8 miles west of Kadoka

Multiplexing: Shared alignment with US-12 from Lemmon to 1 mile east of Thunder Hawk; with SD-20 from 2 miles east of Meadow to 3 miles west of Coal Springs; with US-212 for 5 miles west from Faith; with SD-34 from Howes to Billsburg; with I-90 from Exit 143 to Kadoka; with US-18 from 7 miles south of Patricia to Martin

History and Notes: 1926 alignment only included the Lemmon to Faith segment. In the mid 1930's, the route was extended south onto what had been SD-24 to near Plainview, then southeast along a newly designated route to Philip. The route then went to Kadoka, and replaced a segment of SD-63 south to the Nebraska line.

Greg Wysk of St Cloud, MN shares some information on the north end of SD-73:

Highway 73 used to actually end at a junction with U.S. 12 at Lemmon, about 1/2 mile south of the North Dakota border. It got multiplexed with U.S. 12 through Lemmon to Thunder Hawk and connected with N.D. 49 in 1978 or so. What happened is that S.D. decided to build a railroad overpass and a short extention to connect with the finished Highway 49. Prior to that 49 ended at the border, and you had to take a gravel township road about 1 1/2 miles through Thunder Hawk to U.S. 12. What's interesting is that S.D. was originally going to call this 1/2 mile or so road another number -- Highway 69 I think (unfortunately, I don't have access to the old newspapers). But they just multiplexed 73 along 12.

Old SD-75

Alignment: Segment 1: North Dakota border near Hettinger, ND, to Reva
Segment 2: US-18 to Nebraska border southeast of Denby

History and Notes: The northern segment was designated between 1948 and 1953, but was renumbered as a part of SD-79 around 1975; the SD-75 designation was then moved approximately 18 miles eastward. The southern segment was in place by 1936 (although twice as long, due to a different US-18 alignment). This segment was renumbered SD-391 in 1976.


Alignment: Northwest Perkins County from North Dakota border (ND-8) to SD-20 east of Prairie City

Distance: 28 miles

History and Notes: The SD-75 alignment was moved from far eastern Harding County to this alignment in 1976.

Old US-77

King of Trails
King of Trails

Alignment: Minnesota border at Big Stone City to Iowa border at North Sioux City

History and Notes: This U.S. route was extended north of its previous terminus in Sioux City, IA, in 1930, to Ortonville, MN, replacing SD-15 (King of Trails highway). Followed path of current US-12, SD-15, I-29, SD-115, and SD-105.

Gradually, beginning in the 1960's, US-77 was realigned onto segments of I-29:

  • 1963: SD-50 to Jefferson
  • By 1965: Multiplex extended north to US-18
  • By 1971: Separate multiplex from 3 miles west of Dell Rapids to Brookings
  • By 1977: Northern multiplex extended from Brookings to west of Toronto
  • By 1981: Segments between Dell Rapids and US-18 (old alignment turned into SD-115), and Jefferson to North Sioux City (old alignment turned into SD-105).

The entire route was decommissioned in South Dakota in 1982, when the northern terminus was pulled back to Sioux City.

Heartland Expressway


Alignment: North Dakota border (ND-22) northeast of Ralph to US-18/US-385 east of Hot Springs

Distance: 244 miles

Updated! Freeway: Sturgis to northeast side of Rapid City (co-sign with I-90)

NHS: Newell to Hot Springs

Updated! Multi-Lane Segments: I-90 south to Buffalo Gap, as part of the Heartland Expressway.

Updated! Intersecting Interstates: I-90 at Sturgis and Rapid City

Updated! Multiplexing: Shared alignment with SD-20 for 6 miles east from Reva; with US-212 for 3 miles south from Newell; with SD-34 for 5 miles east from Sturgis; with I-90 and US-14 from Sturgis to Rapid City; with Truck BYPASS US-16 on the eats and southeast side of Rapid City; with SD-40 for less than 1 mile near Hermosa

History and Notes: Original (mid 1920's) alignment had SD-79 designated for what is now US-85 north of Sturgis. After US-85 was designated (end of 1926), SD-79 was rerouted north from Sturgis, through Newell, to end at US-85 near Redig. In addition, the route continued south along US-16 (current US-14) to Rapid City, then to the Nebraska border south of Oelrichs.

In 1936, the northern alignment started at US-85 near the Harding/Butte County line, heading east to the old town of Mason, then south to meet with existing SD-79 north of Castle Rock. The ending point changed by 1971, when US-85 was rerouted northeast to near Castle Rock Buttes, and SD-79 was pulled back to intersect. In 1976, the diagonal segment from Castle Rock became SD-168, and SD-79 was extened northeast to Reva, before heading north to the North Dakota border on what had been SD-75.

The segment between Hermosa and the Nebraska line were straightened out in the 1950's. By around 1960, the south end of SD-79 was pulled back to 5 miles east of Hot Springs, with the new US-385 absorbing the old route to Nebraska.

Updated! The segment from Hot Springs to Rapid City is part of the "Heartland Expressway", which will link Denver and Rapid City. Much of this route has been upgraded to 4 lanes over the last several years. The only remaining segment is from the US-18 junction to Buffalo Gap. Paving the additional 2 lanes in this section is scheduled for 2007.

Meridian Hwy
Meridian Highway

Pan-American Highway


Alignment: North Dakota border (I-29/US-81) near Victor to Nebraska border (US-81) at Yankton

Distance: 239 miles

Freeway: Watertown to North Dakota border (co-sign with I-29)

NHS: Entire route

Intersecting Interstates: I-29 at Watertown; I-90 near Salem

Multi-lane Segments: SD-50 to north edge of Yankton

Multiplexing: Shared alignment with I-29 from the North Dakota border to the north side of Watertown; with SD-22 for 2 miles west of Castlewood; with SD-28 for 1 mile noth from Alsville; with US-14 for 3 miles south from Arlington; with SD-34 from Madison to 2 miles northwest of Winfred; with SD-50 through Yankton

Lewis and Clark Trail: Yankton (multiplexed segment with SD-50)

History and Notes: The "Meridian Highway", US-81 was an original 1926 highway. It was initially co-signed as SD-21. It is also part of the longer Pan-American Highway, which starts in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and ends in Panama.

Little change in the route was noted over the years, except for a realignment of the segment between SD-10 and US-12 around 1950, when the road was moved about 5 miles east. Then, as I-29 was being completed, US-81 was moved onto the interstate. This occurred between Watertown and Peever, and from New Effington to the North Dakota border around 1980. This particular move resulted in the segment from New Effington to North Dakota via Rosholt to be renumbered as SD-127. By 1984, all of US-81 north of Watertown was on the interstate, and the old alignment from New Effington to Sisseton had also become part of SD-127.

Updated! On the south end, a replacement for the US-81 Meridian Bridge over the Missouri River will be built beginning in 2007. The original bridge was built in 1924 for $1.1 million (approximately $11 million today), the last link in the Meridian Highway. It is a double-deck bridge, designed for trains on the lower deck and vehicles on the upper deck, with a lifting mechanism to allow for river traffic. The trains were never brought across the bridge, so it was switched to use southbound traffic on the lower deck, and northbound traffic on the upper deck. The lift mechanism was later removed. Originally a toll bridge to pay for construction, the tolls were lifted at the end of 1953.

The new bridge and alignment, a few blocks west along Broadway, has been approved by both the South Dakota DOT and the Nebraska Department of Roads. The old bridge, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, will be converted to a pedestrian bridge in 2009, when the new bridge is scheduled for completion.

Lewis and Clark Trail: North jct. US-12 to US-212; Pierre

History and Notes: Segment from Pierre northward was assigned in 1927, following the old SD-53 routing. Improvements over the years in this segment include a diagonal route to west of Blunt, completed in the mid 1930's, and relocation of the US-212 to SD-144 segment (6 miles west of previous alignment) to straighten the route, completed between 1944 and 1948.

The segment between Pierre and the Nebraska line was designated by 1932. However, the routing was basically reversed with what is now US-183. The US-83 extension went from Pierre to Vivian, then east to Presho. From there, it extended south, then east to Winner. US-83 entered Nebraska south of Colome. By 1944, the alignment changed to head west from Vivian, then south from Murdo. This is the basic alignment in use today.

The Pearl Harbor Memorial Highway designation (US-83 segment from I-90 to Ft. Pierre) was passed by the South Dakota legislature in 2000. Construction began in August 2002 on upgrading US-83 to an expressway between Fort Pierre and I-90. The southernmost 9 miles opened on October 20, 2003. The entire expressway was completed by summer 2006.
