HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – The Huntington District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announces the temporary closure of the access road across Bolivar Dam on July 9, 2013 from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. The closure is due to a site visit by bidders for upcoming work on the dam as part of the Dam Safety Assurance Program. Signs announcing the closure have been posted.
A large number of people are expected so the closure is necessary so that they may inspect the dam in an efficient and safe manner.
This closure means that the day use area and picnic tables will not be accessible but the fisherman’s access area below the dam will not be affected.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has coordinated this closure with local emergency services and law enforcement.
For more information, contact the Huntington District Public Affairs office at 304-399-5353.
