MTI opens $18.5 million Trades Center in Mitchell

Posted: Updated:

MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - Mitchell Technical Institute has opened a Trades Center, completing a consolidation of the Mitchell campus.

The Daily Republic reports that the $18.5 million Trades Center is a 150,000-square-feet, two-story building that houses nine programs. With its completion, the school is now situated entirely south of Interstate 90.

In 2001, ground was broken on the first new MTI building south of the interstate - the Technology Center, located about 2 1/2 miles from MTI's original campus near Mitchell High School. It was the first step in a moving process that took 12 years and saw the construction of 6 buildings at a total cost of $46.4 million.

A record 1,227 students are enrolled at the school this fall.
