Road across Dale Hollow Dam will be closed for up to six months, Corps of Engineers says


CELINA-The road crossing Dale Hollow Dam will be closed to vehicular traffic beginning Monday November 2, 2009 at 8:00 a.m., the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reports. 


The purpose of the road closure is to provide space for cranes and other large equipment, and to ensure the safety of those performing scheduled maintenance work. Improvements will be made to the railings, including concrete repairs, to provide for public safety. In addition, head gate cabling will be replaced.


The work may take up to six months to complete, and the road will be closed for the duration of the improvements, Corps officials said. The road will be barricaded at the intersection of Walker Ridge Road and Will Terry Road near the south end of the dam and barricaded at the Dale Hollow Dam Road/Cut Through Road intersection at the north end of the dam.
