264th Street - Road Closure

Updated 8/26/18

Due to safety concerns for vehicular traffic traveling on 264th St west of 483rd Ave, this section of the road remains closed as recommended by the engineer hired to assess the damage caused by recent flooding.

A large section of the road has collapsed down the hillside making travel a safety hazard and a danger to the general public.

Engineers will be taking soil bores in the middle of the road and the hillside in the next week or two.  We will be asking for options to both repair the hill and/or move the road south. 

Thank you for your patience while the road is closed. 

Regular Township Meetings are held at 7:30pm on the 2nd Tuesday of each month

Fiber Optic Cable Installation

Additional Information

CenturyLink will be placing new fiber optic cable at various sites in road right-of-ways around Minnehaha County. At some point during the summer of 2018, they will be in Split Rock Township. 

Affected areas: 

  • Veteran's Hwy
  • E 41st St
  • S Riverview Ave

Phase 1 will consist of temporary placement of orange pipes to delineate where cable will be buried.  Phase 2 will consist of actually burying the cable. The cable will run parallel to existing copper lines.

CenturyLink has assured us they will bore under any obstructions, and repair and reseed areas where any damage is inadvertently done. Residents should notify the Township if they notice any crushed culverts or other damage due to this activity.
