SELBY, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT), in collaboration with Walworth County, will hold a public meeting open house on Thursday, April 14, 2022, to gather public input to develop the update to the Walworth County Master Transportation Plan. This open house public meeting will be held at the Selby High School (108 E. Dakota St. in Selby) starting at 5:30 p.m. The open house will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. The opportunity to present written comments will be provided.
The Walworth County Master Transportation Plan study will address a full range of transportation options and issues, including pedestrian, bicycle, transit, freight, and automobile.
