SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT), in collaboration with the Sioux Falls Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and the city of Brandon, will hold a public open house from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Mon. Jan. 23, 2017, at the Holiday Inn Express Convention Center, 1103 N Splitrock Boulevard, Sioux Falls, to inform area residents of the beginning of the study and begin receiving public input on the Environmental Assessment (EA) for the I-90 Exit 406 (SD11 / Splitrock Boulevard) Interchange.
The open house will be informal allowing for one on one discussion with the study team. The purpose for the open house is to inform the public of the study’s progress and options being analyzed, to record any concerns the public may have on those options and to gather ideas to help determine the future look of the corridor along SD11 / Splitrock Boulevard between Redwood Boulevard and Hemlock Boulevard / 260th Street, including improvement options to the Exit 406 Interchange along I-90. A short presentation will be given at approximately 6:05 p.m. followed by an open house discussion with SDDOT, city and consultant staff. Area residents, business owners and daily commuters are encouraged to attend and provide input. The Environmental Assessment process for the project will also be discussed at the public information meeting. The opportunity to present written comments will be provided. Written comments will be accepted until Feb 6, 2017.
For those who cannot attend the open house or would like additional information on the overall study, information is available online at www.sehinc.com/online/406. The presentation and displays shown at the open house will be available online within a few days after the open house meeting. The website also allows for online comments to be submitted. The study team would appreciate hearing from the area commuters, concerned citizens and adjacent landowners and business owners throughout the study period.
