(Brookville, Ind.) – Portions of the recreational area at Brookville Dam are temporarily closed to the public.

The closure comes as contractors are performing improvements at the dam, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District.

Contractors will be on site for the next several months adding more riprap (rock) erosion protection to the face of the dam. The rock has recently broken down due to freeze thaw cycles and fluctuations to the lake levels.

To ensure public safety during the construction activities, some public access points have been closed as of Wednesday. The intermittent closures will affect vehicle and pedestrian traffic on top of the dam, as well as entry points to the Adena Trace hiking trail.

The Army Corps of Engineers says the dam is safe and operating as designed, adding that the construction work is a planned activity.

Anyone with questions about the work should contact the Brookville Lake Office at 765-647-6701.
