Olmsted Locks and Dam (ORM 964.6)

Olmsted Locks and Dam (ORM 964.6) – If river conditions permit, starting at 0600 CT tomorrow (15 April 2023) contract divers will be diving the wicket trench at Olmsted Locks and Dam, during this time navigation traffic will transit through the lock chambers. Diving is anticipated to continue throughout the weekend during daylight hours only. We anticipate having to raise the wickets early next week.

Mariners should exercise caution when transiting the area and take all direction from the lock operators in the tower.
