Public Input For I-90 Exit 59 Study Sought

Rapid_CityPIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation, in collaboration with the Rapid City Metropolitan Planning Organization and the City of Rapid City, will hold a public open house on Wednesday, Feb. 12, to inform area residents on the replacement alternatives for the interchange at Interstate 90 and La Crosse Street in Rapid City. These replacement alternatives include modifications to the La Crosse Street corridor from Eglin Street to south of Mall Drive.

The purpose for the open house is to inform the public of the interchange and corridor alternatives being considered, to record any concerns the public may have regarding those alternatives and to gather ideas to help determine the future look of the interchange area.

Separate meetings with business and landowners along the La Crosse Street corridor are also planned.

For those who cannot attend the meeting or would like additional information on the study, information is available online here.

The meeting will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. in the Spruce Pines Conference Room of the Ramada Inn, located at 1902 N. La Crosse St. in Rapid City.

A brief, summarizing presentation will be made at approximately 5:45 p.m. followed by an open house discussion with SDDOT, MPO, city and consultant staff. The opportunity to present written comments will be provided and accepted until Feb. 28, 2014.
