“Come one, come all and provide some input.”
That was the invitation Mayor Paul Lundberg delivered to city residents regarding tonight’s public meeting on the complete reconstruction of Exit 406. The meeting, which starts at 6 p.m., will be held at the Holiday Inn Express. 
“There is strength in numbers, people, I truly believe that, especially when it comes to a state project,” Lundberg said. “There is definitely strength in numbers, especially when it comes from you. I stand up there with the title behind my name of the mayor, but it’s not as strong or as important if comes from you, Joe Citizen. Please, come one, come all to this meeting so we can get something done on this out there.”
Tonight’s open house will focus on environmental issues surrounding the intersection. The public will be presented information and the DOT will gather feedback on the interchange modification study and environmental assessment – specifically, identifying the preferred alternative for improvements to the interchange and the Splitrock Boulevard/Highway 11 corridor.
At this time, the project is transitioning from the study phase into the early design phase, and tonight’s presentation will be 90 percent accurate of what will get built.
Written comments will be accepted at the meeting and online at sehinc.com/online/406. The comment period closes Oct. 4.
This will be the third public meeting on the exit 406 interchange jointly hosted by the city of Brandon, SDDOT and MPO (Metropolitan Planning Organization). Previous meetings were held in 2016 and 2017.
Residents who aren’t able to attend the Sept. 18 meeting are encouraged to watch the presentation and find the environmental assessment online at sehinc.com/online/406. Brandon City Hall and the Sioux Falls SDDOT office also have copies of the environmental assessment for the public.
