Dredge Update

Dredge Allison Crosby is dredging at Lock 3 lower approach.  The next assignment is Lock 2 lower.  They will be clearing the lock at 0700 and 1900 to allow tows to pass.

Lock 1 Lower Levels

Today Lock 1 Lower is at 8.66', so caution should be used, as it is close to 9' depths.

ACME today is 9.11' and projected to rise to 10.6', Tuesday, 19 July.

Red River Landing is 24.06' and projected to rise to 27.2', Wednesday, 20 July.

This should provide a rise at Lock 1 Lower.
