The Visitor Assistance Center at W. Kerr Scott Reservoir was closed Wednesday due to the National Day of Mourning for the 41st president, George H.W. Bush, who died Nov. 30.

The Visitor Assistance Center will also be closed Thursday and potentially Friday of this week for repairs to a water system, stated a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers press release.

Additionally, Ranger Road at W. Kerr Scott Dam and Reservoir will be closed Thursday and potentially Friday for patching asphalt pavement and installing speed bumps. The portion of Ranger Road being repaired is a federal government service road used for purposes related to W. Kerr Scott Dam and Reservoir, the Corps press release said.

“A growing number of speeders have been using the road as a short cut from Old Highway 268 to Reservoir Road, which has led to safety concerns for (reservoir) staff members and the public. Ranger Road is clearly marked as “No Thru Street” on both sides,” the press release stated.
