BOISE, Idaho. – U.S. Army Corps of Engineers staff at Lucky Peak Dam and Lake temporarily closed the road across the dam at about 9 a.m. today when work in progress to install trilateration monuments along the dam required a larger drilling rig than initially anticipated, making it necessary to close both lanes of the road. Corps staff anticipate reopening one lane of the roadway at about 10:30 a.m. tomorrow, with flagger-controlled traffic assistance.
Boaters are encouraged to use Idaho Parks and Recreation’s Spring Shores Marina, about 10 miles north of the dam on Highway 21 -- turn right onto Arrowrock Road from the end of Mores Creek Bridge and travel 1 mile to Spring Shores Marina.
