Sailing Instructions: Downstream Approach Montgomery Point L&D (NM.05)

Notice Number: 23-55

Due to shoaling, mariners are advised that until further notice, both upbound and downbound tows should favor the short wall in the downstream approach at Montgomery Point Lock and Dam (NM 0.5). Also, a 70-ft width restriction is in place to reduce the risk of grounding in the area. Crews are being dispatched to perform digging and clamming operations in the reach. A subsequent navigation notice will be issued once the shoaling has been cleared and the 70-ft width restriction has been lifted.

Questions or requests for additional information concerning this notice should be directed to the Little Rock District Office, at (501) 324-5096 or you may email
