GRDA to temporarily close Pensacola Dam roadway

Dec 31, 2019

Langley – In an effort to complete an evaluation of the emergency gate operation system, the Grand River Dam Authority is announcing that the portion of Highway 28 that crosses over Pensacola Dam will be closed on Tuesday, January 7, 2020, from 9AM to 1PM.

“We understand this closing might present an inconvenience for those who routinely travel across the dam,” said GRDA Vice President of Corporate Communications Justin Alberty. “However, a full closing of the roadway is necessary to allow the work to proceed as quickly, and safely, as possible.”

Alberty added that informational flyers, including a map for alternate routes, are being distributed to the public. There will also be signage in place to help direct traffic through the detours. Information will also be available at and on GRDA’s social media channels.

“We appreciate the public’s cooperation during this time, so that the work can progress smoothly and quickly,” said Alberty.
