The Mississippi River Commission will be conducting an inspection of the MKARNS aboard the M/V Mississippi. The M/V Mississippi is scheduled to enter the MKARNS at the mouth of the White River on August 5th and proceed upstream to the Port of Muskogee (NM 393.8). The downstream trip will commence on August 11th at the Port of Muskogee and proceed downstream and exit the MKARNS on August 14th. This vessel will receive priority lockage and could possibly remain in the lock for extended periods of time. Therefore mariners are advised that possible lock delays could be experienced during this timeframe.
Mariners are asked to contact the lock operators via radio or phone in advance of arrival to be advised of potential delays.
