Good morning everyone! Happy “almost Friday”!


I wanted to send as much of an advanced heads up as possible that we are expecting one 12 hour closure the week of March 7th at Chicago Harbor Lock to perform a dive inspection. We do not have a date firmed up just yet as weather may impact the exact date the dive occurs. Once we have a firm date, a Nav Notice (NTNI) will be published but, again, I wanted to give as much advanced notice as I could. Please reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns and feel free to distribute to your membership or local operators.
