Lookout Mountain Trail System Receives Lighting System

As part of a project undertaken by the Leadership Spearfish Class of 2016, the tunnel to Lookout Mountain received a lighting system, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The leadership class worked alongside Black Hills Energy, Butte Electric Cooperative, the City of Spearfish, South Dakota Department of Transportation, and the Spearfish Area Community Foundation to complete their project.

The tunnel is located under Interstate 90 in Spearfish to allow safe access to the trail systems on Lookout Mountain. The leadership class was tasked with raising funds to install the lighting system as well as working with both state and city officials, as the area includes both jurisdictions. The Spearfish Area Community Foundation assisted in funding the project by providing a $1000 grant.
