It’s time the city stopped playing patty-cake with country club members and started playing hardball with our transportation needs. I have been talking about it for years, and apparently the public agrees, it is time to build a sensible east/west route through the center of our city.
The city’s newly released long-range transportation plan includes survey results confirming what most folks already know.Â Sioux Falls residents are in no mood to deal with deteriorating streets.Â They want a bona fide solution to traveling with relative ease from the city’s east side to its west side.
Don’t get me wrong, there are shortcuts in Sioux Falls. 33rd street is one of my favorites, but guess what, once you get to Kiwanis avenue, you are screwed, you either have to go to the Iwegian Highway called 41st street or the carlot expressway, West 12th. Enough already. Bulldoze the country clubs and serve the people.
