MITCHELL, S.D. - The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT), in conjunction with the city of Mitchell, will hold a public meeting to present information on the Mitchell Master Transportation Plan. This open house public meeting will be held on Thursday, Jan. 27, 2022, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Corn Palace (604 N Main Street) in Mitchell. A virtual component of the open house will also be available on the study website (www.mitchellmtp.com), starting the day of the in-person public meeting and extending through Friday, Feb. 11, 2022.

 

This public meeting is geared toward presenting the scope and background of the study project and the baseline conditions analysis completed to date. The public’s input will aid in the continued development of the study including the identification of transportation-related improvements needed in the Mitchell area for the next 20 years. 

 

The goal of the study is to develop a long-range transportation plan for the city of Mitchell and immediately adjacent growth area. An online survey is also available on the study’s website to help gather thoughts on the current transportation system, identify future needs, and indicate priorities for future improvements and maintenance.
