MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – The Corps of Engineers will close both lanes of Highway 178 across Bull Shoals Dam from 8:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. Dec. 30 and Dec. 31 to remove equipment needed to refurbish the tainter gates on Bull Shoals Dam.
The equipment is being removed because of the recent persistent rain and rising lake levels.
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.
