The S.D. 44 / Platte-Winner Bridge Corridor Study will investigate and address a full range of transportation options and issues along the Highway 44 corridor between the junctions with Highway 47 east of Winner and Highway 50 west of Platte, including the replacement options for the Platte-Winner Bridge over the Missouri River. In addition to automobile needs, pedestrian, bicycle and freight needs will also be investigated by the study. The purpose of these public open houses is to gather information on community needs and desires to develop a corridor plan that will provide a blueprint to address the future transportation needs in the area. The Environmental Assessment process for the eventual project(s) along the corridor will also be introduced at the public open house meetings.
