Rapid City Council deadlocks on pedestrian crosswalk study


News Staff - October 8, 2019

RAPID CITY, S.D. - A council deadlock means, for now anyway, there will be no study for a more pedestrian friendly crosswalk at Rapid City’s Sixth Street and Omaha.

The Rapid City Council on Monday couldn’t break a 5-5 deadlock on the matter.

The community development request asked for a professional services agreement to study a proposed change at the intersection that connects downtown to Memorial Park.

Mayor Steve Allender, who would usually break a tie vote, couldn’t vote because his decision would trigger spending city money.

The study would have looked into the feasibility of closing Sixth Street to vehicle traffic at the intersection with Omaha, lowering Omaha to below current street level and building a walkway over the road connecting Memorial Park to the downtown corridor.
