____________________________________________________

 

Since 0850 today, Peoria Lock has been shutdown due to a malfunctioning miter gate on the lower right descending side.  Lock personnel and PLC technicians are on site troubleshooting the problem in order to put the lock back in operation. 

 

I will update you as conditions change.

 

Thank you,
