ROCK ISLAND, Illinois – Beginning Monday, Sept. 19, access to the Lock and Dam 16 visitor overlook will be restricted due to construction activities at Lock and Dam 16. The visitor overlook will remain closed during construction activities which are scheduled to conclude in mid-March 2017. Limited access to the visitor overlook will be available during special events such as the Eagles and Ivories Ragtime Weekend, January 27-29, 2017. Winter is a popular time at the visitor overlook due to the large concentrations of eagles that roost near the dam. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
For more information, please contact the Muscatine Ranger Station at 563-263-7913 or email email@example.com.
