HEBER SPRINGS, Ark. – The Corps of Engineers will close both lanes of Highway 25 across Greers Ferry Dam from 8:30 a.m. until 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 13 and Thursday,  Dec. 14, weather permitting, to move work platforms needed to refurbish the tainter gates. Alternative route will be Hwys. 16 and 92 around the west side of the lake.

One lane will continue to remain closed while the rehab work is performed. The single lane closure is scheduled through spring 2018.
