USACE to Temporarily Close West Point Dam Road

Published Oct. 2, 2020

MOBILE, Ala. – To ensure public safety and the safety of work crews during the maintenance of West Point Dam, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at West Point Lake will temporarily close vehicular and pedestrian traffic across West Point Dam Road from October 5, 2020 at 8 a.m. until December 20, 2020 at 4 p.m.

“Many motorists use our West Point Dam Road for their daily commutes across the Chattahoochee River,” said David Barr, Supervisory Park Ranger at West Point Project. “This closure may add to their travel time and we want the public to be informed.”

Signs will be in place at each end of West Point Dam Road to notify the public of its closure. Motorists may use the U.S. Highway 29 bridge crossing in West Point, Georgia, and the Georgia Highway 109 bridge crossing near LaGrange, Georgia as alternate routes across the Chattahoochee River.
