The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Vicksburg District has reopened the upper and lower dam roads on Arkabutla Dam at Arkabutla Lake, located in Tate and DeSoto counties in north Mississippi, after successful equipment installation and precautionary repairs.

The road above the dam was recently closed for the installation of new piezometers, which measure groundwater elevations, water pressures and other key metrics. The road along the dam’s base was recently closed due to the discovery of a non-threatening sinkhole. Traffic flow will return to normal.
