The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT), City of Sioux Falls, and Sioux Falls Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) will hold a public information meeting / open house to receive public input on the I-229 Major Investment Corridor Study.

The study advisory team assembled for this project will be working with a team of engineering consultants to analyze existing and future traffic conditions along the entire I-229 corridor including interchanges and crossroads. During this project specific interchange studies will be completed at Minnesota Avenue (Exit 3), 10th Street (Exit 6), and Benson Road (Exit 9) to determine if improvements will be required within the next 20 years.
