SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - The South Dakota Department of Transportation, in collaboration with the Sioux Falls MPO and the City of Sioux Falls, will hold a public open house on Wednesday, Feb. 6, to inform area residents on conceptual improvement options developed to date for the following roadway corridors:

The purpose for the open house is to inform the public about roadway and interchange conceptual improvement options that have been developed to date, receive comments on those conceptual improvement options, and  obtain public input to help determine the future look of the corridors.
