Road on Greers Ferry Dam to Be Closed from 8 am to 3 pm on Sept 13

Work on Greers Ferry Dam on Arkansas Highway 25 will require the the dam to be closed from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13. The alternate route will be Highways 16 and 92 around the west side of the lake.

Officials from the Army Corps of Engineers Greers Ferry Project Office said they regret any inconvenience this may cause. They ask motorists to drive slowly on the alternate route because some drivers may not be familiar with the roads. Also, they urge motorists to plan around the closing and allow extra time to reach their destinations.

During the work, contractors will use a crane atop the bridge to install a “floating bulkhead” on the lakeside of the dam. The floating bulkhead keeps water off the gates so they can be worked on.

For more information, contact the Greers Ferry Project Office at 501-362-2416, stop by the office three miles north of Heber Springs near the dam on Highway 25.
