U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) will temporarily close Canyon Lake’s dam service road for embankment maintenance from Monday, May 22 to Thursday, May 25.
Overlook Park will remain open.
A contractor will stage equipment and perform maintenance on the road atop Canyon Dam. The service road offers some of the most spectacular views of Canyon Lake and Comal County.
“We understand a large number of people use the dam service road as a place to walk, walk with pets, take pictures, and enjoy being outdoors, but for the safety of all visitors we will be restricting access until the work is completed,” said USACE Civil Engineering Technician John Jacobs.
However, the parking lot at Overlook Park is now limited to less than 70 parking spots and a new gate system for entry helps to limit parking, making it hard for tourists or locals to access the road.
Parking is not allowed along the South Access Road and cars will be towed. Hiking up the earthen side of the dam is illegal.
