The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will close both lanes of Highway 178 across Bull Shoals Dam Wednesday and Thursday from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. weather permitting. However, one lane will reopen at Wednesday evening at 7:00 and close Thursday morning at 8:00.
The Corps advises the closure is necessary to remove equipment used to refurbish the dam's tainter gates. Once the remaining equipment is removed, both lanes will be opened.
The closure has been coordinated with local emergency and law enforcement agencies.
Officials from the Corps' Mountain Home Project Office express regret for any inconvenience this may cause. Those traveling in this area, should expect delays, obey flagmen, and operate cautiously around equipment and work crews.
For more information, contact the Mountain Home Project Office at 870-425-2700.
