East North Street, Omaha Street/Highway 44, and Cambell Street form the backbone of Rapid City’s east side arterial road network. Their ability to carry high levels of traffic is vitally important to the city for reasons of safety, mobility, development potential, and quality of life.
Recent and continued growth in Rapid City has brought new development to northeast Rapid City, bringing challenges and opportunities for this portion of the city’s transportation network. Increased development has resulted in localized growth, and with it increased traffic, leading to congestion, safety issues, and multimodal (pedestrian, bicycle, and transit) needs along these corridors.
This study will evaluate the existing and future conditions of the East Rapid City traffic network to develop a set of solutions.
