Work Set to Begin to Repair Guidewall at Locks and Dam 15
A large section of the lower guidewall at Locks and Dam 15 had to be removed in May 2017 after engineers found that portions of the wall had moved significantly. Now, contracted construction crews are preparing to make repairs.
To facilitate major repairs, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Rock Island District will be closing six of the eight locks and dams on the Illinois Waterway in the year 2020. The closures are scheduled to take place simultaneously to lessen impact to commercial navigation as much as possible. For more information click the link below.
