LOCK OUTAGES AT LOWER MONUMENTAL NAVIGATION LOCK

 

NOTICE NUMBER: 18113
EFFECTIVE: 01/26/2022 07:00 thru 01/29/2022 17:00 PST

 

A contractor will perform repairs of the Lower Monumental upstream floating guide wall river side retaining cables 26 to 29 January 2022, from 0700-1700 each day.  The navigation lock is scheduled to be closed during these times.  Planned work will involve diver operations to perform connections of new cables both at the guide wall and at the river side anchor point within the boat restricted zone.

 

As opportunities emerge to open the lock during this work window due to contractor efficiencies, traffic will be permitted to pass.  If work is completed prior to 1700 on 29 January, an amendment to this notice will be published.

 

PROJECT AFFECTED:  Lower Monumental Lock and Dam - Snake River Mile 41.6
