MOBILE, Ala. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, West Point will begin seasonal maintenance of the government boundary line along the reservoir perimeter of the project beginning on Dec. 6.

The inspection will not require road or park closures.

Work will begin in Heard County near the Highway 27 bridge over New River and progress south toward LaGrange, Ga. After completing approximately 66 miles of property line, the work will end on Youngs Mill Road.

Subdivisions, neighborhoods, and major roads adjacent to public lands in this area include: Grayson’s Landing, Lakemont, Riverbend Drive, River Club, Sanders Road, Eagles Rest, Pineland Pointe, Wellington, Creek Ridge and View Pointe.

During the inspection, we ask the public to drive safely as contractor vehicles will be parked near the road and shoulders with signs stating boundary maintenance. The inspection will be performed by East O&M; and can be identified wearing fluorescent orange or yellow vests, along with hard hats displaying their company logo.

In addition, USACE Park Rangers will be inspecting portions of the property line during the coming weeks. The purpose of these inspections is to identify any encroachments on public land and to ensure the line is properly marked.
