Closure of Lock & Dam on Illinois River May Impede Shipping
USAgNet - 07/31/2020

Because high water prevented the contractor from performing certain pre-closure tasks, the planned closure of the LaGrange Lock and Dam may overlap with grain harvest.

The closure has been extended through Oct. 13, according to a discussion at the Inland Waterways Users Board July 22.

In an attempt to keep the closure period to the original 90 days, the Rock Island District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is in discussions with the contractor to accelerate the process.

However, USACE cannot guarantee an expedited process.

The other lock closures on the Illinois River remain on schedule.
