Salem Lake Construction

The water level at Salem Lake will be lowered Tuesday, September 7, to allow contractors to build a new boat ramp and repair the shoreline bulkhead as part of the phase II improvements to Salem Lake Park.

The water level is expected to remain lowered for 60 to 90 days. While the level is lowered, kayak rentals will be suspended and the shoreline paddlecraft launch area will closed.

The Salem Creek Greenway will be closed from the Salem Lake Trail to the Reynolds Park Road access near Peachtree Street starting Tuesday, Sept. 7, until further notice because of higher flows in Salem Creek while the lake is drawn down.

Park visitors should stay off the lakebed while the water is down for their own safety.

Pier fishing and the Salem Lake trail will remain open to the public.
