CHESAPEAKE, Va. -- The Lake Drummond Reservation on the Dismal Swamp Canal, Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway in Chesapeake, Virginia, will limit public visitation beginning today due to scheduled maintenance.
The closure impacts approximately one-half acre of land, one of the two screened-in porches, two of the three barbeque grills, and the fire pit as a Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers contractor repairs an aging bulkhead east of the Lake Drummond Spillway.
Approximately one-half acre on the west side of the reservation will remain open to public visitation (see attached drawing).
Visitors can expect temporary water and electrical shut downs, barge traffic on the Feeder Ditch, and loud construction activity during daylight hours throughout the construction period.
The Norfolk District will issue a public notice and news release when the reservation reopens to full capacity this fall.
