PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Tickets are available to attend a state senator’s induction into the South Dakota Transportation Hall of Honor.

The Department of Transportation said Tuesday that tickets for state Sen. Mike Vehle’s banquet must be purchased by Oct. 5.

The event will be held on Oct. 8 in Mitchell. Vehle will be the 84th South Dakotan to be inducted.

Vehle has served in the Legislature for 11 years. The department says in his tenure, the Republican has led efforts to address the state’s long-term transportation funding needs.

He has chaired the Senate Transportation Committee and, most recently, Vehle pushed in this year’s legislative session to drastically increase funding for South Dakota’s ailing roads and bridges.
