South Canyon Street to re-open Oct. 1


Please mind the speed limit when traveling through the campground area

SPEARFISH, SD – South Canyon Street, south of the Spearfish City Campground, is scheduled to reopen on Saturday, October 1. 

Even though it takes longer when speed limits are observed, this route is widely considered a “shortcut” by many people, as opposed to using Colorado Boulevard. Motorists need to be aware that even in the off-peak months, there are still many people who walk and bike in this area. 

Motorists using this route are reminded to abide by the set speed limits in the area. The speed limit between Winterville Road and the City Campground is 20 mph; the speed limit through the campground itself is 10 mph; and the speed limit from the hatchery bridge to Grant Street is 15 mph. Drivers are urged to practice extra caution in the area and be on the lookout for pedestrian, bicycle, and wildlife traffic sharing the route.

As through-traffic resumes, the Spearfish Police Department will be actively enforcing the speed limits in this area.
