About the Project

When connected to the northern segment of Veterans Parkway, the additional nine miles of roadway for South Veterans Parkway will support a regional arterial road network around southeast Sioux Falls. This project — the final stage in connecting Interstate 29 with Interstate 90 — will accommodate growing transportation needs across the corridor and help prepare the greater Sioux Falls area for continued vibrant growth and development.

 

The first road segment from Western Avenue to Cliff Avenue is currently under construction. Design for the other three segments is simultaneously underway, beginning with design for segment two of the project, which runs from I-29 to Western Avenue. The three additional segments for South Veterans Parkway will be constructed over the following years until the corridor is completed in 2027. Learn more about each segment.
