MARION COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

The Corps of Engineers will shut down both lanes of Highway 178 across Bull Shoals Dam later this week.

The Corps will close the road from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Friday, April 28, to remove equipment on the dam.

The closure, originally scheduled for Thursday, was moved to Friday because required preparations could not be performed due to Wednesday's severe weather, according to a statement from the Corps' office.

Those traveling in this area should expect delays and use caution around equipment and work crews.

For more information, contact the Mountain Home Project Office at 870-425-2700.
