I-229 Corridor Study Open House


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation, in collaboration with the Sioux Falls Metropolitan Planning Organization and the City of Sioux Falls, will hold a public open house on Wednesday, Oct. 30, in Sioux Falls to inform residents of a corridor study on Interstate 229 and associated interchanges.


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 along any the study’s corridors, and to garner input to help determine the future look of the corridors. Preliminary results of a traffic origin-destination study recently conducted for the Sioux Falls metropolitan planning area will also be available.


The meeting will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Sioux Falls Convention Center, located at 1101 North West Avenue in Sioux Falls. 


A brief, summarizing presentation will be made at approximately 5:35 p.m. followed by an open house discussion with SDDOT, MPO, city and consultant staff. The opportunity to present written comments will be provided. Written comments will be accepted until Nov. 13, 2013.


For those who cannot attend the meeting or desire additional information on the study, information is available online at www.i229study.com.


Notice is further 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).
