Second phase of dam repairs to begin Sept. 9
DOVER (Aug. 28, 2015) – The first phase of dam repairs at Garrisons Lake has been completed ahead of schedule. With the second phase scheduled to begin Wednesday, Sept. 9, DNREC’s Division of Fish & Wildlife will temporarily re-open the north parking lot and fishing footbridge from Aug. 29 through Sept. 8. This area will close again from Sept. 9 through Sept. 30 to allow contractors to complete Phase II of the construction work along the dam.
The entire project is expected to be complete, with full access restored, by Oct. 1, weather permitting. Access to the south parking lot and boat ramp at Garrisons Lake will be unaffected.
