In addition, crossing hours at Lower Granite Dam are being changed to 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The Lower Granite Dam road is closed on Sundays.

In a release, Joe Saxon, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers public affairs chief, said the closures are necessary due to short-term staffing shortages. No date has been set for when the road crossings will re-open, but an announcement will be made when that happens.

Road crossings at all three dams will be closed Monday due to Labor Day holiday.
