WILLIAMSTOWN, Ky. (AP) - The shooting range at Curtis Gates Lloyd Wildlife Management Area in Grant County will operate on restricted hours during the week through the end of the month due to ongoing stream restoration work.
Shooting hours for the range will begin at 5:30 p.m. and continue until sunset from Monday through Friday. The shortened weekday hours will remain in effect through July 31.
Weekend hours will remain unchanged: 9 a.m. to sunset on Saturdays and noon until sunset on Sundays.
The reduced hours of operation at the range will take effect because some of the work will be done within the range safety zone. The restoration project includes the cleanup of two historic dumps, rehabilitation work on more than 1,200 feet of stream and stabilization of nearly an acre of wetland.
