RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - Part of Highway 16 was closed on Monday, but not because of the snowy weather.

Croell Redimix did some standard mine blasting near Bear Country.

Though it was considered standard work, part of the the highway heading into Rapid City was closed.

The work is not visible from the highway.

We reached out to Croell for an interview, but they had no comments.
