South Veterans Parkway From Interstate 29 to 57th Street Virtual Public Meeting
The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT), Federal Highway Administration, and the City of Sioux Falls have launched a virtual meeting to collect public input about the planning and construction of South Veterans Parkway from I 29 to 57th Street.
The virtual public meeting is hosted on the project website through May 29, 2021. Watch video messages from the project team, view the 2012 Environmental Assessment, and comment on any environmental or regulation changes that may have occurred since its development. Leave comments on an interactive map or share them via an online form. Additional comments or questions following the meeting can be shared with the project team at www.southveteransparkway.com.
In 2020, the South Dakota Transportation Commission approved the plans to complete construction of the remaining 8.5 miles of parkway that make up the southern section of Veterans Parkway. Planning, design, and permitting for this project are underway. Construction of South Veterans Parkway will occur in phases starting in 2023. The project is anticipated to be fully completed in 2026.
Due to limitations on public gatherings recommended by the Centers for Disease Control, the SDDOT and City of Sioux Falls have posted the information to the project website rather than presenting documents at an in-person public meeting at this time. In-person meetings will occur as design continues in the future. Members of the public may submit questions or comments through the project website or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any individuals with disabilities who will require a reasonable accommodation to access the information on the project website may submit a request to the SDDOT’s ADA Coordinator at 605-773-3540 or 1-800-877-1113 (Telecommunication Relay Services for the Deaf).
