Montgomery Point Lock & Dam (NM 0.5) will be closed to traffic from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, 28 Sep, for emergency repairs to the hydraulic system that controls the downstream miter gates. Crews are expected to complete the repairs by 5 p.m., but unforeseen circumstances could potentially further delay the closure. The lock will re-open for traffic as soon as the repairs are complete and a subsequent navigation notice will be issued.
Vessels may contact Montgomery Point Lock and Dam on Channel 16 for further information.
Questions or requests for additional information concerning this notice should be directed to the Little Rock District Office, at (501) 324-5096 or you may email CESWL-OP-OM@usace.army.mil.
