Rend Lake Dam Road Closed Tuesday for Routine Maintenance

REND LAKE – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Rend Lake will close the Rend Lake Dam Road to all through traffic Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Access to the South Marcum Recreation Area, Spillway Recreation Area, and the Dedication Lot on the east end of the Rend Lake Dam will remain open. Watch for closure signs at Sugar Creek parking lot and the west entrance to the Rend Lake Dam. 

The road closure is necessary for contractors to install new hardware along all light poles from the Rend Lake Visitor Center to South Marcum Recreation Area entrance. If weather does not permit installation, the project will be moved to a later date.

Updates and changes can be found on the Rend Lake Project Office & Visitor Center Facebook page.
