At Dardanelle Lock (No. 10), mariners are advised that all down-bound tows must stop and orient themselves in a straight position prior to lockage and avoid contact with the lock walls in the vicinity of the new stoplog slot cuts. Tow captains are to follow all commands of the lock operator to safely transit by the land wall and river wall slot cuts, located 20 feet upstream of the upstream miter gate recesses. These locking instructions are to remain in place until the beginning of the next phase of work which is anticipated to start in the spring or summer of 2020.
Mariners are asked to contact the lock via radio on Channel 16 or by phone (479) 890-4987, in advance of arrival, for current conditions.
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.
