RIAC – Locks 16 & 17 Closed Due to High Water – Lock 20 / Louisiana RR Bridge Update – STL above 25ft

Locks 16 & 17 closed at approximately 01:00 this morning. Best guess is they might reopen sometime around 19-July-ISH.

Forecasts went to the bad overnight for Lock 20 & Louisiana RR Bridge.

Lock 20 now looks to close late tomorrow or early on 4-July. Closure stage is 18.0 ft.

Louisiana RR Bridge might close somewhere around 5-July. Closure stage is 20.8 ft on the bridge gauge.

Thank you,
