T15 closure still planned for Oct. 30

Plans remain on track to close a section of Highway T15 that crosses over the Red Rock Dam beginning Oct. 30. That road closure is necessary to facilitate some of the construction of the Red Rock Hydroelectric Project, which is being built at the Dam.

Missouri River Energy Services (MRES), which is building the project, projects that the section of road will be closed to all traffic for about 10 to 12 weeks. During that time, large construction equipment will be positioned on T-15 making the road inaccessible to traffic. MRES will keep the public up to date about any changes in the road-closure date or schedule.

A detour route will be established and signage will be in place to direct traffic in the area. 

As a reminder, for safety reasons, the North Tailwater Area is closed to the public and will remain closed for the duration of project construction.  

MRES encourages people who are concerned about the road closure or interested in any aspects of the Red Rock Hydroelectric Project to visit the project’s website: www.redrockhydroproject.com.
