The lake’s north edge is now open to the public.
It has been closed since September 2018.
The city has been forced to temporarily close several roads around the lake, and some bridges.
Some drivers have been able to use the lake’s trails to get home.
But the lake remains dangerous, and there have been some fatalities there.
“This is one of the toughest places in the world for people to get to, especially when you’re in a vehicle.
You’ve got all kinds of wildlife,” said Mike Jones, a retired truck driver who lives in Lake EufaulAuburn, who has lived in the area for more than 30 years.
“We have to be vigilant about it.”
