LOCK WIDTH RESTRICTION

JAMES W. TRIMBLE LOCK (No 13) NM 292.8

MCCLELLAN-KERR ARKANSAS RIVER NAVIGATION SYSTEM

 

Until further notice, tows locking through James W. Trimble Lock (No 13) NM 292.8 are restricted to 70-foot width, and will need to enter and exit along the river wall.  Sand build-up in the lock chamber is preventing the lock’s downstream land wall miter gate from going fully into its recess position along the wall.

Mariners are reminded that this lock is only available for lockage from 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM each day, and tow haulage is currently unavailable.

Mariners are asked to contact the lock on Channel 16, prior to arrival, for current information.  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 CESWL-OP-OM@usace.army.mil.
