SAEGERTOWN, Pa. --
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District announced today that it will temporarily close the damsite parking area at Woodcock Creek Lake for necessary maintenance work, beginning Monday, Nov. 7.
The maintenance work includes milling and repaving the parking lot asphalt. For the public’s safety, the lot will not be available to park at or walk through during this time.
Alternate parking will be available at the Bossard Nature Center, adjacent to the damsite parking area directly across State Highway 198.
Nearby areas such as the dam overlook, outflow recreation area and dam roadway will remain open during the construction.
The parking area is expected to reopen on Saturday, Nov. 12.
Pittsburgh District’s 26,000 square miles include portions of western Pennsylvania, northern West Virginia, eastern Ohio, western Maryland, and southwestern New York. Our jurisdiction includes more than 328 miles of navigable waterways, 23 navigation locks and dams, 16 multi-purpose reservoirs, 42 local flood protection projects and other projects to protect and enhance the nation’s water resources, infrastructure, and environment.
