RAPID CITY, S.D. -- Reclamation will close the portion of Suzie Peak Road leading to Gadens Point at Belle Fourche Reservoir beginning Monday, September 11, 2017.

Public traffic will be restricted on Suzie Peak Road in the location north of the Middle Point Area due to construction activities as Reclamation is in the early stages of shaping the reservoir shoreline for rip rap placement immediately west and south of Tequila Beach.

"We are closing this portion of the road for public safety reasons," said Jay Leasure, Natural Resource Specialist. "There will be heavy equipment operating in the area and heavy truck traffic hauling rip rap material around and on Suzie Peak Road."

This portion of Suzie Peak Road will be closed to the public until November 15, 2017.

For more information please contact Jay Leasure at 605-394-9757 ext. 3011.
