SIOUX FALLS, SD - The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT), in collaboration with the city of Brandon, city of Sioux Falls, Minnehaha County, Sioux Falls MPO, and the Federal Highway Administration, will hold a public open house at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 25, 2021, at the Holiday Inn Express Convention Center (1103 North Splitrock Boulevard) in Brandon to gather feedback on the preliminary S.D. Highway 11 Corridor Study’s improvement concepts developed to date.
The corridor being studied includes: S.D. Highway 11 from the junction with S.D. Highway 42 to the intersection with Redwood Boulevard in Brandon.

The open house will be informal allowing for one-on-one discussion with the study team. A brief presentation will be given at approximately 5:35 p.m. The purpose of the meeting is to present the preliminary S.D. Highway 11 corridor and intersection improvement concepts developed to date and to gather input regarding those options. Area residents, business owners, and daily commuters are encouraged to attend and participate in the corridor study discussion. The opportunity to present written comments will be provided. Written comments on the public meeting will be accepted until Tuesday, Feb. 8, 2022.
