MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark.  – The Corps of Engineers will close both lanes of Highway 178 across Bull Shoals Dam from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. Nov. 13 and 14, weather permitting, to move equipment needed to refurbish the tainter gates on Bull Shoals Dam. However, one lane will remain closed from 7 p.m. until 8 a.m. each day.

One lane of Highway 178 will remain closed while the rehab work is performed.  The single lane closure is scheduled until work is completed.   

Additional road closures, of up to two days will be scheduled about every eight weeks, to move equipment, as work progresses. 

The closure has been coordinated with local emergency and law enforcement agencies.  Officials from the Army Corps of Engineers Mountain Home Project Office regret any inconvenience this may cause.  If you are traveling in this area, please expect delays, obey flagmen, and operate cautiously around equipment and work crews.

For more information, contact the Mountain Home Project Office at 870-425-2700.
