After approximately two years of reduced water levels at Lake White in Pike County, the dam rehabilitation and bridge replacement project has reached a point where the water will be allowed to be restored to normal levels.
The final reinforcing concrete layer was placed and the spillway gates were raised today, April 27, to allow water levels at the lake to be restored to summer pool. Progress also continues to be made at the S.R. 104 bridge replacement, and ODOT crews will soon begin reconstructing the S.R. 552 intersection with S.R. 104, as well as realigning the Forest Hills Boulevard junction with S.R. 104 and fixing a slip that occurred on the roadway.
The revised schedule for completion of the entire Lake White project is June of this year.
