|Verdigris River Park Closure|
Friday, October 24, 2014
The Corps, Oologah Lake Office recently received funding to repair portions of the rip rap in the Verdigris River Outlet Channel below Oologah Dam. Consequently, while work is underway there will be no access to the boat ramp below the dam and the south side of the park will be temporarily closed during the construction process. We anticipate that the work will begin as soon as the lake level returns to normal and we are no longer releasing water below the dam. The work consists of the following: outlet channel rehabilitation, bank stabilization and some roadway improvements. The Corps is currently making good progress on this initiative while striving to accomplish the subject work with limited impact to the visiting public. Any necessary temporary closures or change to the availability of services will continue to be communicated to the public throughout the process.
