DEC Announces Temporary Closure of Prospect Mountain Veterans Memorial Highway

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) today announced temporary closure of Prospect Mountain Veterans Memorial Highway. Storms caused trees to fall onto powerlines. The highway will be closed to all traffic through at least June 23 while DEC Operations staff and National Grid work to ensure the safety of visitors.

More than 25 trees came down across a 15 mile stretch of the Lake George islands. Approximately 15 camping sites on Narrow Island and Glen Island will be closed until further notice while trees are cleared and docks repaired.
