Why:  Sioux Falls was the first community in South Dakota to install adaptive traffic signal technology in early 2014. Its use on East 26th Street has made a positive impact on traffic flow in this well-traveled corridor, as well as reducing the number of crashes and decreasing fuel consumption for our residents and visitors. Come to the news conference to learn more about this technology and how its use will be expanded onto Minnesota Avenue starting next week.
