PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT), in collaboration with the City of Dell Rapids, will hold a public open house as part of the Dell Rapids Master Transportation Plan. This open house public meeting will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on June 26, 2019, at the Dell Rapids Middle School (1216 Garfield Avenue).


The Dell Rapids Master Transportation Plan study will address a full range of transportation options and issues, including: pedestrian, bicycle, transit, freight and automobile. The purpose for the open house is to inform the public of the study’s intent, to record any concerns the public may have on transportation in Dell Rapids and to gather ideas to help determine the future look of Dell Rapids’ roadway, bus / transit, bicycle and pedestrian systems.


For those who cannot attend the meeting or would like additional information on the study, information will be made available online after the meeting at www.cityofdellrapids.org.


An online survey is also available through the website to help gather thoughts on the current transportation system, identify future needs and indicate priorities for future improvements and maintenance.


The meeting will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the location indicated. The open house will provide opportunity for discussion with SDDOT, city, and consultant staff. The opportunity to present written comments will be provided and will be accepted until July 5, 2019.
