Regional priorities within the Southwestern Division

Fairway Drive over Grapevine Lake Dam will remain closed

Fairway Drive across Grapevine Dam has been closed to the public since August 2018 due to potentially hazardous conditions on the road observed during a routine inspection after heavy rainfall. Ongoing investigations of the road condition are being conducted to determine the level of repair needed for safe vehicular traffic use.  Currently, there is no estimated timeframe for reopening of Fairway Drive to the public. The Corps will continue to coordinate with city officials and other stakeholders and will provide periodic updates through various media outlets as they become available.

Meanwhile, repair of the downstream embankment slope is ongoing. The repair has directly impacted a segment of guardrail and road.  Unforeseen site conditions and weather have caused delays. The repair is currently projected to be completed this Summer.

Grapevine Lake’s flood risk management, water supply and other mission areas continue to be accomplished.  As always, public safety is our priority and we appreciate everyone’s continued patience and understanding.
