The Sioux Falls Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and the South Dakota Department of Transportation (DOT) are in the process of drafting the 2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) and Statewide Transportation Improvements Program (STIP). The TIP and STIP include prioritized listings of multimodal transportation improvement projects for streets and highways, public transportation, aviation, railroads, bicycles, and pedestrian.
Communities in the SECOG region (Clay, Lincoln, McCook, Minnehaha, Turner, & Union Counties) are encouraged to attend the meeting scheduled for Wednesday, July 6th, at 3:00 p.m. in the SECOG Board Room.
