STARBUCK, WA - Officials at Little Goose Lock and Dam will temporarily close Little Goose Dam Road on Thursday, July 29 from 7:00a.m. to 12:00p.m. for a maintenance project.
The closure will block access to Little Goose Landing at Lake Bryan and prevent any public dam crossings for its duration.
Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) workers will be removing an old electrical power transformer, moving it out of it’s current location and across the dam and bridge out to the boneyard where it will be stored. A new transformer will be installed in the near future. A transformer is an important component to the dam’s electrical generation process as it assists in converting power from the generators into high-voltage current.
Public dam crossings are also available at Lower Granite Lock and Dam and Lower Monumental Lock and Dam.
