The dedication ceremony for the newly opened Veterans Drive, which connects the city to Ho-Chunk Capital's riverfront housing development site Flatwater Crossing, took place in front of a large crowd Friday morning, Sept. 22.

Warm temperatures and strong winds didn't deter the crowd of approximately 100 people from listening to remarks from area leaders, including South Sioux City Mayor Rod Koch and Dakota County Commissioner Scott Love, and witnessing a “ribbon cutting” featuring a 1942 Dodge WC52 Weapons Carrier driven by Mike Feathers.

The approximately 1.6 mile long road connects E. 39th Street to Foundry Road. The nearly $6 million project was funded jointly by the City of South Sioux City ($3,781,631), Dakota County ($850,000), and Ho-Chunk ($1,200,000.)

“This is a great example of a public-private partnership,” said Lance Morgan, president and CEO of Ho-Chunk, Inc.
