Kozjak dam road

Kozjak Dam Road

Narrow asphalted road with a length of 14,6km, climbing up to the Kozjak Hydro Power Plant, a large hydroelectric power plant on the river Treska which creates an artificial lake Kozjak, the largest in Republic of Macedonia. The lake It is located in the western part of the country in the municipality of Makedonski Brod.

The surface of the road is asphalt. The lake is 32 km (20 mi) long, with maximum depth of 130 m (430 ft). The maximum elevation of the lake is 469.9 m and it has a capacity of about 380 million m³ of water. There is an abundance of fish in the lake. 
The road's winding design, providing stunning panoramic views, is very curvy and fun for a leisurely ride, so it pays to take it slow. The construction of the dam started in August 1994. The reservoir started filling in May 2003, and the two power generators finally went online in July and September 2004. This road is usually open all year.
