Work to replace the security fence around the outlet works at Canyon Dam begins Wednesday, Oct. 14, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ (USACE) Fort Worth District said it could impact river access and affect traffic on South Access Road.
In a statement, USACE said access to the Guadalupe Nature Trail and parking for the fishing platform will be restricted.
“We do understand that the public will be impacted by our personnel replacing the security fence,” said Lake Manager Javier Perez Ortiz.
If the weather cooperates, fence replacement should take less than 25 days.
For more information, contact the Corps’ Canyon Lake office at 830-964-3341.
It’s good that this work will begin. I hope the workers will have time to do everything necessary to protect the population from possible troubles. If this is planned work, then the road will be closed for a short time. I read that the local government was planning to put up a fence. I don’t know exactly how long such work should take, but 25 days is a lot. If traffic is limited, you need to find a way to get to work and home. Can you tell me if the electricity or water will be cut off due to renovation work?
No fence please
