The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has announced another lane closure coming up at the end of the week. Both lanes of Arkansas Highway 178 across Bull Shoals Dam will be closed Friday and Saturday from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Corps of Engineers Public Affairs Specialist Jay Woods says there’s some work needing to be completed on the gates at the dam.

Woods says anyone traveling in the area should plan accordingly. He says there are some alternate routes around the dam for motorists to use.

The Corps has also announced another closure nearby in the city of Bull Shoals. Woods says the Brown’s Beach boat ramp is closed through Tuesday in order to get equipment into the water needed for the work at the dam.

Anyone seeking further information can contact the Corps of Engineers’ Mountain Home Project Office at 870-425-2700.
