The purpose for the open house is to inform the public of the study findings and the improvement options being recommended, in order to record any concerns the public may have with those options and to gather other ideas to help determine the future look of the corridor. The potential improvement options include ideas for the possible reconfiguration and/or relocation of the Exit 63 (Box Elder / EAFB Commercial Gate) interchange. The study will address a full range of transportation options and issues, including pedestrian, bicycle, transit, freight and automobile. 

For those who cannot attend the meeting or would like additional information on the study, information will be made available online a few days after the meeting at www.i90corridor61to67.com.

The open house will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the location indicated. A brief, summarizing presentation will be made at approximately 6:15 p.m. The open house will allow discussion with SDDOT, city, MPO and consultant staff. The opportunity to present written comments will be provided. Written comments will be accepted until Sept. 27, 2017.
