CELINA, Tenn. (AP) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is closing a road at Dale Hollow Dam for about two months as they schedule operational maintenance at the dam.
Dale Hollow Dam Road stretches across the dam and will be closed from Monday to May 29. Pedestrians and bicyclists will also be prohibited from crossing the dam.
The corps said in a news release that the closure allows for maintenance work and general equipment upgrades to streetlights on the road. The lights will be enhanced with new LED lighting and signage.
The road will have a barricade at the intersection of Walker Ridge Road and Will Terry Road.
