The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Shelbyville would like to give a friendly reminder to 4th of July fireworks patrons that fireworks will be launched at dusk from Ramp Point, located in Dam West Recreation Area. Lake Shelbyville has compiled a list of lcoations best suited for viewing fireworks.
Locations include; Dam West Recreation Area, Dam East Recreation Area & Visitation Center, on top of the Lake Shelbyville Dam, and Dam West Overlook.
At 8pm the Dam Road will be closed to traffic prior to and during the fireworks display from the 9th Street intersection to Dam East.
Parking in these areas is limited, so the Corps of Engineers recommends some alternative locations for parking: Spillway Recreation Area, Forest Park & Dam West High Water Boat Ramp (access General Dacey Trail to walk to Dam West Recreation Area).
No outside fireworks are allowed on government property and offenders will face a citation if caught in possession of fireworks. For additional information call the Lake Shelbyville Project Office at 217-774-3951.
