PORTLAND, Ore. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will begin erosion repairs below Dexter Dam, southeast of Eugene, July 10. The repairs may disrupt access to the south shore fishing area until July 20.

High flows eroded the shoreline, causing a fishing platform to collapse, in December 2010. The Corps will place large boulders as ‘rip-rap’ along the river and will close areas during mobilization of equipment before and after the repairs.

The area around the work-site will be restricted from public access, but the west-end of the parking area will be open for recreation purposes.

The fishing platform will not be replaced at this time.
