The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is closing Lakeside Dr. starting at 7 p.m. Friday, May 17, in anticipation of additional rainfall this weekend and early next week. Those traveling on Winscott Road will not be able to turn onto Lakeside Drive.
High amounts of rainfall over the past several weeks have caused elevated water levels at Benbrook Lake, and the intersection and spillway is being closed as a precaution.
Residents will still be able to access Pecan Valley Golf Course, Art Cowsen trailhead, and the Benbrook youth soccer fields coming from Altamesa Boulevard and Dirks Road, however Lakeside Drive will be closed to thru traffic and residents will not be able to access Winscott Road.
