Army Corps of Engineers begins traffic pattern change April 1 across Roush Dam's Highway 5

Published March 29, 2013

Louisville, Ky. -- A temporary lane closure of Highway 5 across the J. Edward Roush Lake dam, Huntington, Ind. is  planned for next week beginningApril 1.  The closure will begin soon and will continue into July or August of 2013. 

The Army Corps of Engineers Roush Lake Natural Resources Project Manager Matthew Palmer said that one lane will be shut down with traffic minimally disrupted. However, some delays to cross the dam are expected. The Corps is asking the community to be prepared for delays and have patience traveling while the traffic patterns across the dam are temporarily changed.

The routine work is necessary to maintain the middle of the dam's spillway. The main components of the dam are to be painted which in turn assures the prescribed dam operations are occurring according to dam safety standards.

The construction company that is working the J. Edward Roush dam work is T & T Construction Enterprises, LLC, Leitchfield, Ky.
