Beginning on Monday September 18, 2023, the outside northbound and southbound lanes of South Minnesota Avenue will be closed approximately 1/4 mile south of 85th Street to install turn lanes at the proposed South Veterans Parkway intersection. One northbound and southbound lane will be maintained during construction. Drivers are urged to use caution and reduced speeds while traveling near the construction area and may want to consider alternate routes.

In 2020, the northern segment of Veterans Parkway opened to traffic and the South Dakota Transportation Commission agreed to complete construction of South Veterans Parkway to accommodate regional and future growth and development. Construction will begin in summer 2023 and will occur in segments, with each segment taking about two years to complete.
The project is anticipated to be fully completed in 2027. For more information, visit www.southveteransparkway.com.
