CARLYLE LAKE – The Carlyle Lake Main Dam Bridge Deck will be closed Tuesday, 6 September 2022 until Tuesday, 13 September 2022 for routine maintenance. Cleaning and repair of the monolith joints ensure the integrity and increase the longevity of these structures.

Many visitors use the existing Main Dam Road for recreational opportunities. During this time frame, pedestrian traffic will be restricted across the Main Dam bridge deck. The East and West Main Dam service roads will remain open for visitors wishing to enjoy walking, running or bike riding.  Visitors should also consider using the Carlyle Lake Bike Trail located around the lake and through the City of Carlyle.
