HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. – The Corps of Engineers will close both lanes of Highway 25 across Greers Ferry Dam from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. April 15 and 16, weather permitting, to install equipment needed to refurbish the tainter gates. However, one lane will open each night from 7 p.m. until 7 a.m. Alternative route will be Highways 16 and 92 around the west side of the lake.
Then beginning April 17, only one lane will remain closed while the rehab work is performed. The single lane closure is scheduled through November.
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 Greers Ferry Project Office regret any inconvenience this may cause. If you are traveling in this area, please expect delays, obey traffic lights, and operate cautiously around equipment and work crews.
