Olmsted Locks and Dam ORM 964.6

Olmsted Locks and Dam ORM 964.6. Due to the falling river conditions at Olmsted Locks and Dam, project personnel have started raising the wicket dam at 0800 CT 22 January 2024. Navigation traffic will continue to transit the navigation pass and transition to the lock chambers as project personnel progress with the raising. We anticipate having to lower the wicket dam later this week due to forecasted higher Ohio River flows.

All mariners will take direction from the Olmsted Locks and Dam control tower.
