The road across Hardy Dam will be closed until further notice after Road Commission personnel assessed a possible problem at the spillway.
“We got a call last night around 10pm that one of the tipping walls was beginning to tip the wrong way,” said Road Commissione Director Kelly Smith .
“We looked at it and decided to close it until Consumers people could take a look at it. They’ll be drilling some cones to verify it isn’t a large void causing the problem.
“Our crew will be setting up detours, by noon but its already blocked by law enforcement
"This is a precautionary measure. Sometimes when you get a warm/cold cycle ice can form and cause problems.
“Right now we don’t know a lot. It’s not a critical situation, we just want to be cautious and make sure.We should know more later today."
A Consumers crew is enroute from Midland.
