Portion of south access road at Lake Atoka closed for construction

A portion of the access road on the south side of Lake Atoka near the Atoka Dam is closed to vehicle traffic so damage to the spillway caused by flood waters in 2015 can be repaired. The closed area includes a 2 ½ mile stretch of road between the playground and the spillway access road, located approximately 1/4 mile north of Highway 69 at Venita Allen Road. 

 

Visitors to the lake will still be able to access the playground, pavilion and boat ramp area, but will need to use the north entrance at Lake Shore Drive off of Highway 69. 

 

During construction, the lake level will be lowered by approximately five feet so crews can access the spillway area. The project is expected to be completed in 16 months.

 

All other recreational activities, including fishing and boating, will remain available to the public for the majority of the project. Lake access may be limited from time to time for rock blasting activities that are necessary to enlarge the existing spillway.
