This from the C.O.E.
The Corps of Engineers announced Monday that it will close both lanes of AR Highway 178 across Bull Shoals Dam from 8:30 a.m. until 6 p.m. Dec. 30 and Dec. 31 to remove equipment needed to refurbish the tainter gates on the dam.

The closure has been coordinated with local emergency and law enforcement agencies.
