Road crossing Gavins Point Dam to close for at least 1 month
YANKTON, S.D. (AP) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says it will close Crest Road crossing Gavins Point Dam near Yankton, South Dakota, for at least a month.
The road will close at 8 a.m. Tuesday so contractors can re-seal expansion joints in the powerhouse. That work was postponed last year due to a road closure on Nebraska Highway 121 when a bridge was washed out during the “bomb cyclone” storm in March.
The Corps says the road will remain closed for about four to six weeks, 24 hours a day, seven days a week including weekends. People are asked to plan to taking alternate routes during the closure.
