Olmsted Locks and Dam (ORM 964.6)

Due falling Ohio River flows and rising Mississippi River flows, starting at 0900 CDT Thursday (2 May 2024) contract divers will be diving the wicket trench at Olmsted Locks and Dam, pending river conditions.  Navigation traffic may continue to transit over the navigation pass, until divers are far enough across the dam to warrant transitioning to the chambers.  At that point, traffic shall transit through the lock chambers without swinging miter gates.  Diving is anticipated to continue through Saturday during daylight hours only.
