The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District announced last week Dale Hollow Dam Road at the dam in Celina would close to all traffic Wednesday, July 21, while personnel perform scheduled maintenance on the unit head gates. Due to the extensive nature of this work, there is no scheduled date for re-opening the roadway; however, the work is expected to take more than a month to complete.
Pedestrians and bicycle traffic are also not allowed across the dam. The closure provides for the safety of employees while making room for the equipment utilized during the maintenance.
The road is barricaded at the intersection of Walker Ridge Road and Will Terry Road near the south end of the dam. A barricade is set up at the Dale Hollow Dam Road/cut through road intersection at the north end of the dam.
Concerns or questions about the road closure can be addressed to the Dale Hollow Dam Powerhouse Office at (931) 243-3135.
