WALLA WALLA, Wash. — Officials at Lower Granite Lock and Dam are closing dam crossings to the public for two weeks.

The closure, which began Friday, July 10, was prompted by COVID-19 health concerns, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Dam officials will provide an update status on crossings in about 14 days.

Public dam crossings are still available at Little Goose Lock and Dam and Lower Monumental Lock and Dam. Travelers can call 1-888-DAM-INFO (1-888-326-4636) for the most current dam-crossing information.
