Pierre, S.D. – Governor Kristi Noem and Sioux Falls Mayor Paul TenHaken announced plans to complete construction on the Veterans Parkway on the south side of Sioux Falls. The Transportation Commission approved plans for the final completion of the project earlier today.
Governor Noem says, “the Veterans Parkway will enhance economic opportunities for the city and the surrounding area, and I’m grateful for the continued partnership between the State and the City to get this project across the finish line.”
There are four remaining projects anticipated, which will span from I-29 to 57th Street. Once the remaining projects are completed, the City of Sioux Falls will take over jurisdiction.
The total estimated cost for the remaining portion of the Veterans Parkway is $208.9 million, including $176 million from the State of South Dakota and $32.9 million from the City of Sioux Falls.
