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.
