HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. One lane of Highway 25 across Greers Ferry Dam will close temporarily beginning at 7 a.m. Monday, Jan. 7 and ending at 5 p.m. Jan. 18, 2013.
Contractors will be working on the dam from the roadway. Traffic lights will be positioned at each end of the dam to direct traffic. Officials urge motorists to obey traffic signals.
