Current Status (October 9, 2013)
The project field teams have completed the necessary field work to develop the Traditional Cultural Resources report. We expect this report to be completed by the end of October 2013. Additionally, the Biological Report has been completed. The report identifies certain species of plants and will be coordinated with the US Forest Service.
Using these two reports, HDR will consider the impacts for the preliminary alternatives that are being considered in the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The Draft EIS is currently scheduled to completed by April 2014.
What is the South Rochford Road EIS?
The South Dakota Department of Transportation (SDDOT) is partnering with Pennington County (the County) and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on a proposal for roadway improvements on South Rochford Road in Pennington County, South Dakota. The proposed project would involve roadway improvements to South Rochford Road approximately 12 miles beginning at Rochford and terminating at the intersection of Deerfield Road.
