ABERDEEN, S.D. - The South Dakota Department of Transportation, in collaboration with City of Aberdeen, will hold a public open house as part of the Aberdeen Area Master Transportation Plan.

The Aberdeen Area 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 the Aberdeen area, and to gather ideas to help determine the future look of Aberdeen’s roadway, bus / transit, bicycle and pedestrian systems.
For those who cannot attend the meeting or desire additional information on the study, information will be made available online after the meeting at www.aberdeentransportationplan.com.
The meetings will be held from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the location indicated.
