Questions After Presentation

  • What is the “Taxi Service” offered with this project? Reede Construction, Inc. is in negotiations with a local taxi service to provide taxi service to and from businesses whose access is closed. Reede will give out the phone number to call to set up a ride from a designated point to the business along Mt Rushmore Road. More details to come.
