Lake Texoma Campgrounds Work Begins
The Army Corps of Engineers plans to spend $4.5 million this summer fixing campgrounds bordering Lake Texoma that still show signs of damage from the 2007 flood, but to do that, they'll also have to close some areas.
Roads among other things are being repaired and rebuilt at various Lake Texoma campgrounds, according to KTEN-TV, Dennison Texas.
"There's going to be a number of projects throughout the year. Our goal is to affect the customers the least amount possible." said Army Corps spokesman Beny Rorie.
One thing that will be affected is reservations. Lake officials say they don't want people to reserve a lot, then have construction being done in the same area. Essentially, they don't want people to lose reservations because of repairs.
It's not easy work ahead and crews had to wait until the weather was just right. Part of the job will be laying new gravel, but to settle properly mother nature will have cooperate as well. With spring break right around the corner, officials are trying to move construction along quickly to get campers back out on the water.
