Arkabutla Dam road section closed

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Vicksburg District announced that it has made a closure to a small section of road along the bottom of Arkabutla Dam. 

The closure affects only the section of roadway above the outlet tunnel and will not affect the remainder of the road across the bottom of the dam, the road across the top of the dam, or either side of the outlet channel recreation area. 

Visitors traveling north along Arkabutla Dam Road/MS Hwy. 301 will need to take the road across the top of Arkabutla Dam.  

The closure is needed for repairs above the area to be completed. There is no definite timeline for the closure and the USACE will alert visitors once the area has been reopened. 

The map of the closure area is shown here:
