Temporary full road closure of Highway 177 across Norfork Dam

MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is scheduling a full road closure for Highway 177 across Norfork Dam from 6:30 a.m. Sept. 18 until 5 p.m. Sept. 21, 2023, to remove equipment used to perform routine maintenance on the dam.

The closure is being coordinated with emergency services and law enforcement agencies.

Please plan an alternate route through this area during the road closure. Travel to locations on Highway 177 past the Norfork closure will require a detour using Highway 5 through Norfork, then Baxter County Road #64 north back to Hwy 177 at Jordan. Northbound travelers on Hwy 177 will need to take the detour around the dam on Baxter County Road #64 south from Jordan to Hwy 5 south of Norfork.  

USACE officials regret any inconvenience this may cause and ask for the public’s cooperation until the work is complete.

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