Sioux Falls to add first east-west thoroughfare through town in decades
$200M Veterans Parkway South to break ground in June
Five years and $200-million worth of work to build a high-speed, east-west traffic corridor through southern Sioux Falls will kickoff in the coming weeks.
The South Dakota Department of Transportation last week opened bids on phase one of the 8-mile-long Veterans Parkway South project that will connect the multi-lane thoroughfare from 57th Street and Highway 11 where it ends now to Interstate 29.
“It’s a huge joint effort between the city of Sioux Falls, South Dakota DOT and federal highway,” DOT engineer Harry Johnston told The Dakota Scout Monday. “It will be fully opened by spring of 2028.”
While the entire project is estimated at around $200 million, the lowest of four bids that came in for the first phase of work — between Western and Cliff Avenues — was $49.6 million.
