Mississippi River Between Missouri River and Minneapolis

The project consists of a 314-river-mile reach of 9-foot commercial navigation channel from Guttenberg, Iowa, downstream to Saverton, Missouri. It includes 14 locks and 11 dams (L/Ds) at 12 sites from Lock 11 to Lock 22. The navigable portions of this river and the locks and dams that allow waterway traffic to move from one pool to another are integral parts of a regional, national, and international transportation network. Recreation facilities include 25 public recreation areas and the Visitor Center located at Lock & Dam 15. Typical recreation and lease receipts are $1,000,000, with regional economic impacts estimated at $380,000,000 with 13,500,000 visits.
