Study Objectives

Lincoln County Highway 106 (271st Street) is the future growth boundary between the City of Sioux Falls and the City of Harrisburg and is currently under the jurisdiction of Lincoln County. Cooperation, coordination, and communication of the long term vision of this corridor is essential to ensure this corridor is properly planned and developed. All three jurisdictions have determined the need to jointly work together with administrative assistance from the South Eastern Council of Governments to achieve a well-planned, efficient, and safe corridor for all modes of travel. This project is being funded through a grant from the Sioux Falls Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) using federal transportation planning (PL) funds.


The study will complete a planning level corridor study for the County Hwy 106 corridor from Tallgrass Avenue to 480th Avenue in Lincoln County, South Dakota. Specific study objectives include the following:

  1. Determine potential intersection configurations for all arterial section line intersections along the study corridor.
  2. Determine the need for additional through, turning, and / or passing lanes along the County Highway 106 mainline while developing an access management plan along the entire corridor.
  3. Create a high level environmental review technical memorandum of any known issues along the corridor within the study limits.
  4. Identify a land use plan, within ½ mile north and south of the corridor, coordinating the municipalities Comprehensive Plans along the corridor. Include a discussion of jurisdictional transfer upon annexations.
  5. Create final products for use by the City of Sioux Falls, Harrisburg, Lincoln County, SDDOT, and the Sioux Falls MPO which will provide guidance to implement recommended improvements for future construction.
