Work crews have temporarily closed the lake’s Powerhouse Access Area and a portion of the Pine Creek Access Area while they add handicap accessible courtesy docks to existing boat ramps, upgrade existing boat ramps, add new informational signs, install handicap accessible vault toilets, add handicap accessible parking and a handicap accessible fishing pier at the Powerhouse Access Area.
“These enhanced amenities will make a visit to Lake Glenville easier and more pleasant for the public,” said Travis Sinclair, Duke Energy project manager. Duke Energy and the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission are responsible for the upgrades.
Free public access to Lake Glenville will continue to be available throughout the construction at the existing boat ramp at the Pine Creek Access Area, at 2799 Pine Creek Road, in Cullowhee. Both Pine Creek Access Area entrances will remain open.
The weather-dependent construction work is scheduled to be completed by January 2014.
