    2017 S.D. Transportation Hall of Honor Inductees Announced

     

    PIERRE, S.D. – Clyde Jundt from Pierre and Mark Knight from Aberdeen have been chosen for induction into the South Dakota Transportation Hall of Honor for 2017.

     

    The purpose of the Transportation Hall of Honor is to recognize those who have made a lasting, valuable or unique contribution to South Dakota’s air, highway or rail transportation system.

     

    The South Dakota Transportation Hall of Honor dates back to 1972 and now includes 88 inductees.

     

    Mark Knight is the former vice-president at Foothills Contracting, Inc. of Aberdeen, a well-known and respected grading contractor for South Dakota and surrounding states. Mark spent 37 years in the grading business and has been a tireless advocate for the highway and transportation industry in South Dakota. He has served on many boards and committees both locally and nationally, including a term as AGC of America President, the first South Dakotan to ever achieve this prestigious level of leadership.

     

    Clyde Jundt is a former South Dakota Department of Transportation employee who retired in 1994 after 37 years. Clyde graduated from South Dakota School of Mines and Technology and served in the U.S. Army. During his time with the department he was passionate about providing practical engineering for structures to effectively link transportation corridors across the state. He was also one of the principal designers of the famous Keystone Wye and “pigtail” bridges on U.S. Highway 16 in the Black Hills.

     

    Banquets to honor both Jundt and Knight will be announced at a later date.
