Canyon Lake, Texas --
FORT WORTH, Texas – U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials at Canyon Lake announce today that beginning on Monday, July 15, only one lane of South Access Road will be open between the Canyon Dam Outlet and the intersection of FM 306.
The partial road closure between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. each day is necessary for work crews to safely complete erosion repairs to the road by the dam and the work is expected to be completed by Wednesday July 17. The flow of traffic alternately utilizing the single lane will be managed by use of temporary traffic barriers and flaggers. "We realize that the partial road closure will cause some slow-downs and inconvenience and we appreciate the patience and understanding of everyone impacted as we perform this necessary repair work," said Javier Perez Ortiz, Canyon Lake Manager, "and we ask that vehicle operators utilize extra caution and comply with our traffic control personnel to ensure the safety of everyone."
Additional information on this project can be obtained by calling the lake office at 830-964-3341.
