As part of a water line project currently taking place at Pea Ridge National Military Park, contractors will cut a ditch through the tour road in order to install a new water pipe. During this time, the tour road and horse trail will be closed to all vehicle traffic. The closure will take place on Wednesday, Nove. 29, weather permitting, and is scheduled to last only one day.
The visitor center will remain open and visitors can walk the park. Visitors are asked to call the park at 479-451-8122 extension 1227 to inquire whether the road is open during that week in order to avoid any inconveniences.
Pea Ridge National Military Park preserves and commemorates the March 1862 Civil War battle that helped Union forces maintain physical and political control of the state of Missouri. Administered by the National Park Service, the 4,300 acre battlefield is located six miles east of Pea Ridge, just off of U.S. Highway 62.Community on 11/29/2017
