Louisville, KY --
Portions of the dam recreational area at Brookville Lake, Brookville, Indiana, are temporarily closed to public access while contractors are performing some improvements. To ensure public safety during upcoming construction activities, some public access points will be temporarily closed effective today, March 3, 2021. These intermittent closures will affect vehicular and pedestrian traffic on top of the dam as well as entry points to the Adena Trace hiking trail.
Contractors will be onsite for the next several months adding more riprap (rock) erosion protection to the face of the dam. The rock has broken down due to freeze thaw cycles and fluctuations to the lake levels and needs to be replenished. The dam is safe and operating as designed. This is a planned construction activity, which is routine in nature and will not cause any impacts to the function of the dam.
Any questions concerning the upcoming work can be directed to the Brookville Lake Office at (765) 647-6701.
