CANTON, S.D. (KELO) — If you are used to going through Canton to get to Newton Hills State Park, you’ll need to find another route.
Lincoln County Hwy 135 (482nd Ave) is closed for repair between 285th Street and 288th Street due to a sinking area between the horse camp and state park entrance.
Anyone wanting to go to the state park should use State Highway 11 to County Highway 140 and access the campground from the south.
The Lincoln County Emergency Manager says it will be a long-term closure as engineers are taking core samples to determine the extent of damage and a possible way to fix the problem.
Access to the horse camp and Boy Scout Camp is still allowed from the north on 482nd Avenue.
