Old River Lock Maintenance Update


Following is an update from Old River Lock:


Due to an extended period of time it took for the divers to clean the recess for the Emergency Bulkheads at Old River Lock, we will not start testing the Lowering Carriage Machinery until 0630 (6:30 am) Monday, 1 March 2021. Hopefully by COB Wednesday of next week I should be able to give the navigation industry a better schedule for anticipated closures.


They would only be shut down during daylight hours Monday thru Wednesday.
