News: One lane of highway 25 across Greers Ferry Dam to temporarily close
Story by Jay Townsend
HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. – One lane of Highway 25 across Greers Ferry Dam will close temporarily for four weeks beginning Nov. 26.
The northbound lane will be closed and diverted from Nov. 26 through Dec. 2 and the southbound lane will be closed and diverted from Dec. 3 through Dec. 21.
Contractors will be installing equipment in the dam tower while corps maintenance employees perform repairs to the roadway. Stoplights will be positioned at each end of the dam to direct traffic. Officials urge motorists to obey traffic signals.
Officials at the Army Corps of Engineers’ Greers Ferry Project Office regret any inconvenience this may cause, and asks for the public’s cooperation until the work is complete.
The closure is being coordinated with emergency services and law enforcement agencies. Corps officials ask travelers to plan alternate routes and allow extra time to reach their destinations.
For more information contact 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.
