LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN)  – A portion of the trail around Holmes Lake is temporarily closed as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers modify a part of the dam embankment.

According to the Engineers, construction will involve digging up an area on the downstream side of the dam, installing a sand filter, and increasing the dam’s overall stability. These repairs are necessary to bring the dam up to current industry standards.

Construction scheduled to be completed over a month from now, around early November.
