SDDOT Seeks Public Input for U.S. Highway 14A / S.D. Highway 34 (Lazelle Street) Corridor Study

STURGIS, S.D. – The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT), in collaboration with the City of Sturgis, Meade County, and the Federal Highway Administration, will hold a public meeting open house from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 21, 2022, at the Sturgis Community Center (1401 Lazelle St.) in Sturgis to present transportation improvement scenarios developed for the U.S. Highway 14A / S.D. Highway 34 (Lazelle Street) Corridor Study.

The corridor being studied includes:

  • U.S. Highway 14A / S.D. Highway 34 (Lazelle Street) from the west Sturgis city limits to the intersection with Fort Meade Way east of Sturgis.

The open house will be informal allowing for one-on-one discussion with the study team. A brief, prerecorded presentation will be running throughout the open house. The purpose of the meeting is to present the developed improvement options to the public and to gather public input on the needs and desires for the corridor. Area residents, business owners, and daily commuters are encouraged to attend and participate in the corridor study discussion. The opportunity to present written comments will be provided. Written comments on the public meeting open house will be accepted until July 8, 2022.

The presentations and displays shown at the open house will be available online within a few days after the meeting. The website also allows submission of online comments.
