I thought it was ecurity related but it is not the dam itself.

Probable hapens to fall on the edge between two aerial photographs, one taken before and one after the bridge was built. I lies on the border so the imagery for the complete road on either side might only go up to the bridge so the middle bottom half misses out on up to date imagery.
