The South Dakota Department of Transportation and City of Sioux Falls have been working toward constructing Veterans Parkway from I-29 to I-90 since the original Environmental Assessment (EA) was approved in 2003. The purpose of the current Supplemental EA is to verify that the selected design still accomplishes the purpose and need of the remaining 8.7-miles of South Veterans Parkway, as well as to reevaluate impacts due to changes in regulation, guidance, and the environment since 2012.

Any individuals requiring a reasonable accommodation should submit a request to the SDDOT’s ADA Coordinator at 605-773-3540 or 1-800-877-1113 (Telecommunications Relay Services for the Deaf).

Watch this short presentation to learn about the EA process and our findings.

COMMENT ON THE SUPPLEMENTAL EA

Your comments matter. By law, federally funded transportation projects like South Veterans Parkway are required to assess the environmental effects of the project before making decisions. The stringent processes outlined in the National Environmental Policy Act have two goals: to allow for public participation and to generate better informed decisions. Read our ‘Tips for Developing and Submitting Comments’ guide before you get started.
