The South Dakota Transportation Commission will review a proposal to reduce the speed on a stretch of highway in Minnehaha County facing new development.
The oversight board will meet Thursday to discuss a public hearing on the speed change and consider grant applications for roads supporting agribusiness in the state.
The speed zone change would affect about a mile on Highway 42 leading up to Ellis Road. The limit would drop to 55 mph then 45 mph before the intersection on Sioux Falls' western border.
The change reflects growth in the area, including the new Cherry Lake Reserve development.
Commissioners will also review four applications for agribusiness grant applications. The applications request funds for road infrastructure to support growth at two dairies and two grain elevators in the state.
