HUNTINGDON COUNTY, Pa. (WJAC) — Work on the dam-dredging project is set to begin this week at Whipple Dam State Park in Jackson Township, Huntingdon County.

Greenwood Furnace State Park complex manager Michael Dinsmore says trees will be cleared and 42,000 cubic yards of sediment will be removed from the lake bed.

He says all pavilions and parking areas on both sides of the lake will be closed until further notice.

Parking along Laurel Run Road for access to surrounding Rothrock State Forest will remain open.
