  • MKARNS Nav Notice No. SWL 14-24 Lock 08 Longer than Normal Lockage Times

    TOAD SUCK FERRY L&D - Mariners are advised that lockages at Toad Suck Ferry Lock (No. 8) NM 155.9, will require an additional 15 minutes each time the lock level is raised to the upstream water level. One of the two valves that fills the lock to the upstream water level failed, and the additional time reflects use of one valve instead of two. The length of downtime is unknown at this time.
