SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT), in collaboration with the Sioux Falls Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and Lincoln County, will hold a public open house on Tuesday, Oct.24, on the beginning of a corridor study for Interstate 29 from Exit 62 (US18/Canton) to Exit 73 (Lincoln Co. 106/Tea).


This open house public meeting will be held beginning at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 24, at the Tea Middle School Commons, 505 W. Brian St. in Tea.


The purpose for the open house is to inform the public of the study’s intent, to record any concerns the public may have along the study’s corridor and to gather ideas to help determine the future look of the corridor. This includes the possible reconfiguration of the Exit 64 (SD44 / Worthing), Exit 68 (Lennox) and Exit 71 (Tea/Harrisburg) interchanges. The study will address a full range of transportation options and issues including pedestrian, bicycle, transit, freight and automobile.


For those who cannot attend the meeting or would like additional information on the study, information will be made available online a few days after the meeting at www.I29corridorstudy.com.


The open house will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the location indicated.  A brief, summarizing presentation will be made at approximately 5:45 p.m. The open house will allow discussion with SDDOT, county, MPO and consultant staff.


Notice is further given to individuals with disabilities that this open house meeting is being held in a physically accessible place. Any individuals with disabilities who will require a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in the open house meeting should submit a request to the department’s ADA Coordinator at 605.773.3540 or 1.800.877.1113 (Telecommunication Relay Services for the Deaf). Please request the accommodations no later than two business days prior to the meeting in order to ensure accommodations are available.
