Fairway Drive, the road that goes over the Grapevine Lake dam, will be closed from now until September. This road closure will allow the Corps of Engineers to repair the dam.
Access will still be allowed to Silver Lake Marina and Cowboys Golf Club from the south end of the dam. Entry will continue to Grapevine Golf Course and Rockledge Park from the north end of the dam.
This makes for a very long drive to Grapevine Golf Course and Rockledge Park for the people in Grapevine. It may impact the number of golfers at Grapevine Golf Course for the remainder of the summer. The detour route to the north side of the dam now includes Grapevine Mills Parkway (FM 2499), International Parkway and Lakeside Parkway to Fairway Drive.
