Lower Monumental Dam crossing closed through May


KAHLOTUS -- The vehicle crossing at Lower Monumental Dam will be closed through May 31 due to construction work.

The closure is to ensure public safety while crews replace the intake gantry crane on the top deck of the dam, which is located south of Kahlotus on the Snake River.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which operates the dam, awarded an approximately $7.5-million contract to COH, Inc. of Boisbriand, Quebec, in Canada, to build and install two new cranes at Lower Monumental and at Lower Granite Dam.

Crossing information for other Snake River dams is available at 1-888-DAM-INFO (1-888-326-4636).
