Corps of Engineers dewaters Barkley Lock for maintenance operations
The Lake Barkley Navigational Lock is back up and running after being dry for most of the month of November as work crews inspect and repair underwater components. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District employees dewatered the 51-year-old, 110-by-600-foot lock and closely inspected the miter gates, culvert valves and all other areas of the lower lock chamber that are normally underwater.
