STURGIS, S.D. - The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT), in collaboration with Meade County, will hold a public open house on Wednesday, Dec. 20, to inform area residents on the beginning of a corridor study on Interstate 90 from Exit 32 (Junction Avenue) to Exit 40 (Tilford Road) near Sturgis.


This open house public meeting will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 20, 2017, at Sturgis Brown High School, 12930 E. Highway 34, Sturgis.


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 corridor and to gather ideas to help determine the future look of the corridor, including the possible reconfiguration and/or relocation of the Exit 34 (Black Hills National Cemetery) and Exit 37 (Pleasant Valley Road) interchanges.


The study will address a full range of transportation options and issues, including pedestrian, bicycle, transit, freight and automobile. Information will also be provided regarding an upcoming SDDOT research project to test implementing variable speed limits along a portion of the study corridor.


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 https://www.i90exit32to40project.com.


The open house will be held from 4:30 to 7 p.m. at the location indicated. A brief, summarizing presentation will be made at approximately 5:45 p.m. The open house will allow discussion with SDDOT, county and consultant staff. The opportunity to present written comments will be provided. Written comments will be accepted until Jan. 5, 2018.
