Department of Transportation Seeks Public Input into

I-90 Exit 59 (La Crosse Street) Interchange Options Study



RAPID CITY, S.D. - The South Dakota Department of Transportation, in collaboration with the Rapid City Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and the City of Rapid City, will hold a public open house on Thursday, Nov. 29 to inform area residents on the beginning of an interchange options study for the following roadway corridors in Rapid City:


  • I-90 Exit 59 (La Crosse Street) Interchange
  • La Crosse Street from Eglin Street to south of Mall Drive


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


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 http://www.sddot.com/transportation/highways/planning/specialstudies/Default.aspx - click on the La Crosse St. (Exit 59) link.
