Minnewasta Road residents vote to exclude traffic calming part of construction plan


Residents who live on Minnewasta Road off of Sheridan Lake Road in Rapid City say they aren't happy with one part of a construction plan for their street.

Residents voted 39 to 1 to leave the "traffic calming" part out of the plan. Because there is no posted speed limit on the street, the plan called for certain measures that would try to reduce speed, such as installing speed bumps.

But City Engineer Dale Tech says that is up to the residents. He says "trying to keep speeds down on a residential road is an important thing and it's an important quality of life thing for the people that live there and i think it was, quite clear that they didn't want it"

Ultimately, it will be up to the city council to decide whether or not to keep the traffic calming measures in the construction plan.
