One Lane of Ark. 25 Across Greers Ferry Dam to Temporarily Close
For those of you traveling in the Heber Springs area, note that one lane of Ark. 25 across Greers Ferry Dam will be closed for about four months beginning in February. The temporary closure is due to construction on the dam. Stoplights will be positioned to direct traffic on one lane at a time, according to officials at the Army Corps of Engineers. The closure is being coordinated with emergency services and law enforcement agencies. Travelers should plan to use alternate routes if possible 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.
