Corps of Engineers to expand parking at Broyles Recreation Area on Lake Hartwell

Published April 20, 2018

SAVANNAH, Ga. – The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Hartwell Lake Project Office will begin construction of an additional parking area at Broyles Recreation Area in Anderson County, South Carolina, beginning the week of April 30, with completion anticipated by July 1. The area will remain open for public use during the duration of the project.

“The construction of additional boat trailer and single car parking will better accommodate the current levels of public use at this very popular picnic and access area,” Kenneth Bedenbaugh, Hartwell Lake Program Manager said. “We urge the public to use the utmost caution and maintain awareness of construction activity while in the park.”

The construction area will be clearly marked with construction fencing and the public should not enter the construction zone at any time.

“We regret any inconvenience this facility improvement project upgrade causes our visitors,” Bedenbaugh said.
