Cooper – Beginning Monday, motorists will need to find a new route when crossing the Cooper Lake Dam in Delta County.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers reports new paving on FM 1529 and CR 4795 between Cooper and Tira will remain closed until at least Thursday.
Access to the Doctor's Creek Unit and to the Tira boat ramp will remain open although traffic may experience slowdowns or temporary delays due to the on-going paving. The Stilling Basin road leading to the spillway will also be repaved and closed during this time.
Road stripes are expected to be painted after the road has been opened back up.
