EAST RAPID CITY GROWTH SUBJECT OF PUBLIC MEETING
Input Sought As Part of Traffic & Corridor Analysis Study
RAPID CITY, SD--State, regional and local officials are inviting public input on the impacts of new development in northeast Rapid City. A public meeting on the East Rapid City Traffic and Corridor Analysis Study is scheduled next Thursday from 5-6:30 p.m. at Western Dakota Tech.
The meeting is hosted by the Rapid City Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO), the State Department of Transportation and the City of Rapid City. The traffic and corridor analysis study is currently collecting data and completing analysis, alternatives development, and recommendations for potential infrastructure improvements along corridors in the study area.
"Recent and continued growth in Rapid City has brought new development to northeast Rapid City, bringing challenges and opportunities for this portion of the city's transportation network," said Kip Harrington, City Long Range Planner. "Increased development has resulted in localized growth, and with it comes increased traffic and issues related to congestion, safety issues and multi-model needs along these key corridors."
Harrington indicates Thursday's meeting is an opportunity for the public to provide input and learn more about the study.
For more information, contact Harrington at 394-4120.
