Effective June 1, 2017, all recreational areas on Triadelphia Reservoir, including Brighton Dam, Greenbridge, Triadelphia, Pig Tail and Big Branch, will be closed to the public. This includes use of the picnic areas, all water activities and fishing.
The community impact of the project is that the Triadelphia Reservoir may be lowered significantly so that most middle range rain events will not damage the work efforts. Once construction begins recreation areas located along the reservoir, including boat ramps will be closed to the public. The Azalea Garden will remain open but with limited parking. There will be some truck traffic and Brighton Dam Road will be reduced to a one lane bridge over Brighton Dam with the traffic flow being controlled by traffic lights.
