The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ monthly Dam Modification Project Situation Report included a notice that test blasting is scheduled to begin shortly:
“The contractor is tentatively scheduled to conduct test blasting in the emergency spillway excavation area during the week of November 12, 2018. SR-155 will be temporarily closed during blasting operations. Production blasting is scheduled to begin mid-December.”

USACE also continues to warn of potential traffic delays:
“Construction on SR-155 is underway and will continue into 2019, creating traffic delays near the Main Dam. USACE will provide updates on expected impacts via public outreach, the monthly SITREP, and the Isabella Task Force.”
