The section of Bell Road running over J. Percy Priest Dam is set to reopen Thursday after months of being closed to accommodate dam maintenance.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers closed the section of road at the beginning of August as part of scheduled maintenance on the dam. The road is expected to reopen ahead of morning rush-hour traffic Thursday, according to a release from the Corps.

While the Stones River Greenway Trailhead, the J. Percy Priest visitor information center and the overlook are currently open to the public, the right bank tailwater will remain closed for repair work to the area below the dam.
