Highway closure may cause inconvenience for drivers

HEBER SPRINGS, AR (KAIT) - One lane of Highway 25 across Greers Ferry Dam will temporarily close for about four months beginning in February while construction is performed on the dam. Stoplights will be positioned to direct traffic on one lane at a time.

Officials at the Army Corps of Engineers' Greers Ferry Project Office said they regret any inconvenience this may cause, and they are asking the public for cooperation while the work is completed. Officials urge motorists to obey traffic signals.

The closure is being coordinated with emergency services and law enforcement agencies. The Corps asks travelers to plan alternate routes and allow extra time to reach their destination.

For more information contact the Greers Ferry Project office at (501) 362-2416, or stop by the office near the dam on Highway 25, three miles north of Heber Springs.
