A popular scenic route at Gulf State Park will close for repairs as soil erosion has caused sinkholes on the road.

Both residents and visitors love to see the scenic views right beside Lake Shelby via Gulf State Park Road however, due to the number of visitors, the road has developed a lot of sinkholes which are being addressed and repaired now.

Barricades will be put up beyond the Woodside Restaurant entrance next week. Locals and visitors will be detoured to Highway 59, so expect a bit of traffic congestion in that area.

The Gulf State Park Road closure and the start of repair are scheduled to begin next Tuesday at 7 am and end Wednesday at 5 pm.
