RAPID CITY, S.D. - The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT), in collaboration with the Rapid City Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and the city of Box Elder, will hold a public open house on Monday, March 6, 2017, to inform area residents on the options developed as part of a corridor study for the following roadway corridor:


I-90 from Exit 61 (Elk Vale Road) to Exit 67 (Liberty Boulevard / EAFB Main Gate)


This open house public meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Monday, March 6, at the Black Hills University, 4300 Cheyenne Boulevard, Rapid City.


The purpose for the open house is to inform the public of the preliminary study findings and potential improvement options developed, to record any concerns the public may have with those options, and to gather ideas to help determine the future look of the corridor. The potential improvement options include numerous ideas for the possible reconfiguration and/or relocation of the Exit 63 (Box Elder / EAFB Commercial Gate) interchange. The study will address a full range of transportation options and issues, including pedestrian, bicycle, transit, freight and automobile. 


For those who cannot attend the meeting or would like additional information on the study, information will be made available online a few days after the meeting at www.i90corridor61to67.com.


The open house will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the location indicated. A brief, summarizing presentation will be made at approximately 6:15 p.m. The open house will allow discussion with SDDOT, city, MPO, and consultant staff. The opportunity to present written comments will be provided. Written comments will be accepted until March 24, 2017.


Notice is further given to individuals with disabilities that this commission meeting is being held in a physically accessible place. Any individuals with disabilities who will require a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in the commission meeting should submit a request to the department’s ADA Coordinator at 605-773-3540 or 1-800-877-1113 (Telecommunication Relay Services for the Deaf).
