MONTGOMERY POINT LOCK AND DAM (NM 0.5)

CHANGE IN OPERATIONS WHEN NAVIGATION PASS IS OPEN

MCCLELLAN-KERR ARKANSAS RIVER NAVIGATION SYSTEM

 

Starting October 28, 2018, Montgomery Point Lock and Dam, NM 0.5, will adjust its operations when the navigation pass is open.  Between the hours of 10:30 AM and 12:30 PM each day, a lock operator will not be available to provide current conditions to mariners.  The navigation pass will remain open for use during this two-hour period each day, and mariners can contact Norrell Lock & Dam (No. 1) NM 10.3 on Channel 16 for the most recent information available on conditions at Montgomery Point.

When falling water conditions require closure of the Montgomery Point navigation pass, the lock will be available for use 24 hours a day.  Mariners are reminded that the Montgomery Point navigation pass is closed when the tailwater falls below elevation 115’, and the pass is reopened when the tailwater exceeds this elevation.

Questions or requests for additional information concerning this notice should be directed to the Little Rock District Office, at (501) 324-5739 or you may email
