Mariners are advised the crest gates are raised and the navigation pass at Montgomery Point Lock & Dam (NM 0.5) is closed. All vessels are required to pass through the lock. Intermittent delays are possible as the Corps of Engineers Floating Plants and divers perform preparatory actions for the lock dewatering scheduled Nov. 26. This prep work is necessary to minimize the duration of the lock dewatering.
Mariners are asked to contact the lock operator via radio on Channel 16 or phone (870) 548-3400 in advance of arrival to be advised of current conditions.
Questions or requests for additional information concerning this notice should be directed to James McKinnie in the Little Rock District Office at (501) 324-5739 or (501) 324-5096, or you may email CESWL-OP-OM@usace.army.mil.
