West point dam roadway closed Nov. 18-22

MOBILE, Ala. -

The roadway on top of the West Point Dam will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians during Nov. 18-22 because of work in the dam.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, announced a large crane will positioning steel beams to create a sealed barrier between the spillway gate and the reservoir so workers can inspect and perform maintenance on the gates when needed.

The closure may increase commuter driving time. Alternate routes across the river are the US Highway 29 Bridge in West Point and the Georgia Highway 109 Bridge west of LaGrange.
