Six Lanes A Possibility for Interstate 90

On Monday, the South Dakota Transportation Commission decided to move forward with negotiations regarding several miles of service road toward Box Elder, reports the Rapid City Journal. This move may indicate plans to expand Interstate 90 from the current four lands to six. Such a plan would require approval from the City of Box Elder, Pennington County, and the Department of Transportation.

If the plan is approved, Box Elder would design and expand Mall Drive east toward the Flying J truck stop. Additionally, most of the service road running parallel to I-90 from Ellsworth Air Force Base to Rapid City would be demolished. A small stretch along Exit 63 would be preserved to allow access to a new section of Mall Drive.
