RIVERS — If your upcoming Veterans Day weekend plans include a road trip for fishing or visiting on the opposite side of the Snake River, you may want to take advantage of a rare opportunity to drive across Lower Granite Dam on Monday.
Most U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dams are closed to cross-dam public vehicle traffic on federal holidays, unless otherwise announced.
Lower Granite Lock and Dam, near Pomeroy, Wash., will be open for public vehicle crossings from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
Lower Granite’s regular public vehicle crossing schedule allows traffic crossings daily, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., except for federal holidays, unless otherwise announced. Tour and school busses must contact the dam at (509) 843-1493 at least 24 hours in advance for crossing authorization.
