LEWISVILLE, Texas --
Construction inside Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area (LLELA) is leading to the temporary closure of the main road, just east of the Visitor’s Center, from Monday, June 7 to Friday, July 2.
Crews are working to improve drainage around the new permanent road and finishing up work on the parking lot. No vehicular traffic will be allowed past the Visitor’s Center during this time, but the public will still have access to hike the Blackjack Trail.
This is the last phase of construction that impacts the public areas of LLELA associated with the $150 million Lewisville Dam Safety Modification project that began in June 2020. The dam continues to safely perform authorized purposes of flood risk management, water supply, recreation, and environmental stewardship.
The Visitor’s Center is run by volunteers and is open on Saturdays, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., and Sundays, 1-5 p.m. Anyone who wants to come to the Visitor’s Center can call 469.635.5483 or go to llela.org for more information.
