HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. – The Army Corps of Engineers will close one lane of Highway 25 across Greers Ferry Dam Sept. 12-23 to repair monolith joints. The work will require an alternating lane closure midway through the project.
The work requires a drilling rig and additional equipment on the roadway to repair the monolith joints. Traffic lights will be on both ends of the dam to ensure a safe flow of traffic around the workers and equipment until the project is completed.
The lane closure has been coordinated with local emergency and law enforcement agencies. Officials from the Corps regret any inconvenience this may cause. They ask motorists to drive slowly and urge motorists to plan around the lane closing and allow extra time to reach their destinations.
For more information call the Greers Ferry Project office at 501-362-2416, or stop by the office near the dam on Highway 25, three miles north of Heber Springs.
