Department of Transportation Seeks Public Input into I-229 Exit 5 (26th Street) Crossroad Corridor Study 


PIERRE, S.D. -- The South Dakota Department of Transportation, in cooperation with the Sioux Falls Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and the City of Sioux Falls, will hold a public open house on Tuesday, July 17, to inform area residents on the beginning of a corridor study for the following roadway corridors:


  • I-229 Exit 5 (26th Street) Interchange
  • 26th Street from Cliff Avenue to Village Square Circle
  • Yeager Road from 26th Street to 33rd Street
  • 33rd Street from Cliff Avenue to Yeager Road
  • Southeastern Avenue from 18th Street to 33rd Street


The purpose for the open house is to inform the public of the corridor study’s intent, to record any concerns the public may have with the study’s corridors, and to gather ideas to help determine the future look of the corridors. 


Separate meetings with business and landowners along the corridors are also planned.


For those who cannot attend the meeting or desire additional information on the study, information is available online at www.26thstreetcorridorstudy.com/


The meeting will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. CDT in the Morningside Community Center, 2400 South Bahnson Avenue.  A brief, summarizing presentation will be made about 5:35 p.m., followed by an open house discussion with South Dakota Department of Transportation, MPO, City, and consultant staff.  An opportunity to present written comments will be provided; those comments will be accepted until July 31.


Notice is given to individuals with disabilities that this public meeting is being held in a physically accessible place. Please notify the SDDOT ADA Coordinator within 48 hours of the public meeting if you have special needs for which this agency will need to make arrangements. The telephone number for making special arrangements is 605-773-3540 or 1-800-877-1113 (Telecommunication Relay Services for the Deaf).
