Folks found out during the Dakota Relays at Howard Wood Field earlier this month that you CAN get there.

However, the patience needed along with astute navigation skills will come in handy to attend the South Dakota State Track Meet in Sioux Falls.  Friday the final event on the South Dakota High School Activities Association calendar will begin and end on Saturday.

Preliminary events take place at three sites with three classes combined at Wood Field on Saturday.  Russell Street is in year two of construction, so using that avenue will be an ordeal.  Leave early as the clip shows traffic compression, which leads to congestion.  Madison Street, Western Avenue and West Avenue can be used to arrive safely.

Parking will prove to be a hair-raising experience, too with the soon-to-open Denny Sanford Premier Center squeezing parking availabilities.
