Langley – Due to a temporary problem with the lighting across Pensacola Dam, the Grand River Dam Authority is asking drivers to exercise extra caution while crossing the dam at nighttime.
On Thursday (July 10), GRDA crews discovered a fault in the high voltage cable used to power the dam’s light poles. Lightning, associated with the storms that blew through the area on Thursday, likely contributed to the fault and, as a result, a portion of the electric cable will need to be replaced. However, until that work is completed, the lights across the dam will be out of service.
Temporary digital signage was scheduled to be installed at both ends of the dam on Friday (July 11), to remind drivers to take precautions. GRDA is currently working to secure new cabling and schedule the necessary repairs.
