Feds Approve South Dakota Highway Plans

Pierre, SD

Federal officials have approved the South Dakota Transportation Department's plan to spend nearly $1.6 billion in the next five years. 

The DOT each year develops a five-year program that identifies highway construction and other projects to preserve and improve the state's transportation system.  

The Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Transportation Authority have approved the state's 2013-2017 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program.  

State Transportation Secretary Darin Bergquist says a sound transportation system is vital to South Dakota's economy and enhances the quality of life in the state
