Bonds Flat Road Reopens

Turlock Irrigation District is pleased to announce that the reconstruction of Bonds Flat Road near Lake Don Pedro Is now complete, and the road between Blue Oaks Recreation Area and the Don Pedro Recreation Agency Headquarters will be temporarily reopened to all traffic beginning today at 4:00 p.m. However, due to the "Fireworks on the Water" show Sunday, July 2, the road will be closing again from 8:00 a.m. Sunday through midnight for traffic control. The road will reopen to all traffic at 12:00 a.m. Monday, July 3rd and will remain open after that time.

The old Don Pedro Dam still exists at Don Pedro Lake. Some 220’ under the water of a full lake, the old Don Pedro Dam is 1.5 miles upstream from the current dam’s location. Completed in 1923, it was, at the time, the world’s largest concrete gravity dam. The lake created by the old dam, with its storage capacity of 289.000 acre feet, was only 14% of the capacity of the current lake.
