Updated parking lot will benefit many
Published: Thursday, February 28th, 2013
With the start of the busy tourist season only a few months away, the Forest Service Supervisor’s Office is ready to serve visitors to the Black Hills National Forest (BHNF) with improved facilities and a new parking lot and kiosk. Staff at the supervisor’s office see an average of 80 people a day in the summer and these new additions and updates will greatly benefit visitors and the organization.
“We’re allowing for future expansion to the building in the event we need to expand,” said Alberta Settle, south zone engineer for the Forest Service.
The construction, done by prime contractor Rangel Construction in Rapid City, started in April 2012 and wrapped up in December. The parking lot was repaved and increased by 11 parking spots for automobiles and four spots for RVs. The parking lot was also widened to allow larger vehicles to easily enter the lot, turn around and leave.
