Closure of Garrisons Lake north parking lot and footbridge
for upgrades to dam rescheduled for Aug. 17-Sept. 30
DOVER (Aug. 7, 2015) – Due to delays for the contractor in the shipment of construction equipment, a DNREC dam repair project at Garrisons Lake near Smyrna has been postponed. Revised plans now call for access to the north parking lot and fishing footbridge at the Division of Fish & Wildlife-managed fishing and boating area to be closed from Monday, Aug. 17 through Wednesday, Sept. 30 to allow contractors to perform construction work along the dam.
The project is expected to be complete, with full access restored, by Thursday, Oct. 1, weather permitting. Access to the south parking lot and boat ramp at Garrisons Lake will be unaffected.
For more information, please call the Fisheries Section at 302-739-9914.
