Road over Boca Dam closed indefinitely

The Bureau of Reclamation has closed the road across Boca Dam located near Truckee to implement a new security plan for the dam.

The bureau will prohibit public access on the bureau-owned road across the dam under certain conditions. The actual duration of closure is not known at this time, but will likely last throughout the summer.

Boca Dam and Reservoir, part of the bureau’s Truckee Storage Project, are located on the Little Truckee River, about six miles east of Truckee.

Reclamation identified the need to restrict public access to the dam to help provide protection for the public and lands downstream.

For more information about the status of the closure, call the recording at (800) 742-9474.

When prompted on the recording, press 2, and then press 4 for Boca Dam road closure information.
