The study team over the past several months has been working towards building and validating the Dynamic Traffic Assignment (DTA) model for this project.
This process took a significant amount of time and effort. This model will allow us to evaluate interchange options along the I-229 corridor and determine what changes may be needed over the next 20 years.
With this step nearly complete, the study team will be updating the website in the near future with a new project schedule.
Thanks for your interest and patience.

The Interstate 229 (I-229) Corridor through the City of Sioux Falls carries commuters and tourism traffic, provides access to the ever expanding east side of this thriving community, and allows direct access to downtown. The I-229 Major Investment Study will allow the City of Sioux Falls, the Sioux Falls Metropolitan Planning Organization, the South Dakota Department of Transportation, adjacent landowners, and area users to help determine the vision of the corridor. The I-229 Corridor Study Team will be using technology on this project that will allow us to distribute traffic in a manner that better mimics how delays during peak hour periods change driver behavior on our arterial streets and on I-229. Please become engaged in helping the study team work through this complex and dynamic study to learn what I-229 will become over the next 20 to 40 years.
