State, Sioux Falls Reach Agreement on New Highway

26th and Highway 11

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A project to build a six-lane road paralleling Interstate 229 is getting a boost from an agreement between the city of Sioux Falls and the state of South Dakota.

The Argus Leader reports that the agreement will leave the city with long-term responsibility for maintaining South Dakota Highway 100.

The project was stalled for years because of a lack of federal money. The city worked out an exchange with the state because the delay was stalling development of eastern Sioux Falls.

Some segments have been finished, including a stretch that helped spark development of the Dawley Farm retail area. Another piece between 26th 57th street opens later this month.

Continuing the work north is a $56.6 million project that would take about five years to complete.
