COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Sections of the Columbus Riverwalk is scheduled to close for construction.

The North Highlands Dam, south to 23rd Street will be closed October 5 through spring 2021 to replace aging electric infrastructure. Georgia Power construction crews will perform to work.

The closures will take place in two phases. In phase 1, the section that will close is adjacent to Georgia Power’s 1st Avenue substation north of the City Mills construction project. In Phase 2, the closure will be from the bridge at North Highland Dam, south to 1st Avenue substation.

This effort is an essential piece of Georgia Power’s commitment to ensuring reliable electric service to customers in the Columbus area.
