The Sioux Falls Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) will update the public on Go Sioux Falls, the MPO’s 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan, with an open house on Tuesday, August 18th, from 5:00 – 6:30 PM at the Holiday Inn Sioux Falls – City Centre (100 W. 8th Street, Sioux Falls, SD). Go Sioux Falls will establish goals and priorities to guide how future transportation investments are made to help shape the region’s transportation network through the year 2040.
