Mariners are advised that James W. Trimble Lock and Dam (No. 13) NM 292.8 will be closed to navigation traffic from 12 noon until 4 p.m. on June 3, 2013, and from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. on June 4 and June 5. These times will replace the normally scheduled maintenance period closures for these dates.
These closures are to allow divers to repair and replace grease lines to the miter gate pintle balls. This work is necessary to ensure proper greasing of the pintle balls.
If work is completed ahead of schedule, normal operations will resume at that time. However, unforeseen problems could require additional time.
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.
