Badlands Loop Road (Hwy 240) to Remain Open
BADLANDS NATIONAL PARK, INTERIOR, S.D. —The Badlands Loop Road at Cedar Pass will continue to operate with one lane open.Upon additional exploration of the failure site, the National Park Service, Federal Highways and ACC developed a suitable reroute option that will maintain single lane access."The exigency of maintaining access expressed by the local community, stakeholders and emergency service operations and effective civic engagement caused the park to engineer a safe alternative to closing the road," stated deputy superintendent Reed Robinson. "We are hopeful that one lane will be able to remain open throughout the construction project."
There may be short periods of time when long vehicles such as motorhomes and vehicles pulling trailers will not be able to travel through the construction area.Please check www.nps.gov/badl or www.facebook.com/BadlandsNPS for updated information.
There will be another public meeting on Monday, June 22, at 6 pm at the Interior Community Center.
