SIOUX FALLS, SD – The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT), in collaboration with the city of Sioux Falls, the Sioux Falls MPO, and the Federal Highway Administration, will hold a public open house meeting from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 26, 2022, at Lincoln High School (2900 South Cliff Ave.) to inform area residents of the beginning of the Interstate 229 Exit 6 Interchange Modification Study.
The corridors being studied include:

The open house will be informal allowing for one-on-one discussion with the study team. A prerecorded presentation will be uploaded to the project website (www.i229exit6.com) on Wednesday, Jan. 26, 2022, and will be played on a loop during the public open house.
The purpose of the meeting is to introduce preliminary interchange concepts to the public and gather input.

Written comments on the public meeting will be accepted until Monday, Feb. 28, 2022.
For those who cannot attend the open house or desire additional information on the overall study, a virtual component of the public meeting will also be available at the study website www.i229exit6.com starting the day of the public meeting. Meeting materials and a prerecording of the presentation will be posted to the website. The website also allows for online comments to be submitted. The study team would appreciate hearing from the area commuters, concerned citizens, and adjacent landowners and business owners throughout the study period.
