Seeks Public Input into

Brown County Transportation Plan Study



Aberdeen, S.D. - The South Dakota Department of Transportation, in collaboration with Brown County, will hold public open houses to gather public input for help in developing the Brown County Master Transportation Plan.

The Brown County Master Transportation Plan will address a full range of transportation options and issues, including pedestrian, bicycle, transit, freight, and automobile.  The purpose of the public meeting is to gather information on community needs and desires to develop a long-range, multi-modal plan that will provide a blueprint to address the future transportation needs of Brown County.

The meetings will be held from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the locations indicated.  A brief, summarizing presentation will be made at approximately 5:45 p.m. followed by an open house discussion with SDDOT, county, and consultant staff.  The opportunity to present written comments will be provided.  Written comments will be accepted until Nov. 3, 2011.
