Additions to 85th and I-29

SIOUX FALLS, SD (Dakota News Now) — Nearly a decade after developers and officials came together to advance an interchange at 85th Street and I-29, it was officially cleared to move forward.

After years of study and documentation, the federal and state governments have given the go-ahead to complete the design and begin construction of the new interchange at 85th Street and I-29 without significant environmental impact.

Design is expected to be completed this year and construction will be completed in late 2026 or early 2027.

We told you a few weeks ago about the construction of the Orthopedic Institute that’s being built right where Tea and Sioux Falls meet, and it probably won’t be long before that finds plenty of company.

In Lincoln County, development continues to push toward Tea and Harrisburg.

A popular family spot is expanding there – Air Madness is adding even more attractions. The building converts its athletic practice areas into a bowling alley and ax throwing hall, as well as an enlarged arcade.

The laser tag arena at the complex will likely be repurposed for the new offerings, Anderson said. Conquer Escape Rooms and Conquer Gaming, which offers video game computers and consoles and virtual reality games, will remain.

There is a large restaurant that could come here that could feature favorites from the Big Orange Truck Food Truck and will likely include a variety of burgers and what they call “high end bar grub.”

Planning is being finalized so this summer we are looking to build on the new additions with openings next spring in time for prom and graduation season.
