Dale Hollow Dam road set to close

CELINA-The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recently announced the road crossing Dale Hollow Dam will be closed for nearly two months.

Due to scheduled operational maintenance on the dam, Dale Hollow Dam Road, which stretches across the dam, will be closed to all traffic from April 8 through May 29, 2013, a Corps release explained.

The information also said pedestrians and bicycle traffic will also not be allowed across the dam.

The Corps said the closure provides safety for employees performing maintenance work and general equipment upgrades to streetlights on the road, which will be enhanced with new LED lighting and signage.

The release said the road will have a barricade at the intersection of Walker Ridge road and Will Terry road near the south end of the dam and a barricade set up at the Dale Hollow Dam Road/cut through road intersection at the north end of the dam.

Concerns or questions about the road closure can be addressed to the Dale Hollow Resource Manager’s Office at (931) 243-3136, the news release said.
