Ice is starting to thicken up and as expected helper boat requirements are on the rise.  I do have a report that at LaGrange they still have the occasional tow show up without the full box-to-rake minimum causing delays. 

 

All locks are reporting an issue with uploading ice photos this morning and have not been updated.  I will be submitting a request with technical support to look into the issue right away.

 

Thank you,
