Kentucky Lock’s first lift-in shell to be placed
Diagram of Public Viewing Designated Area at Kentucky Dam of placement of a 1.3-million-pound concrete shell Friday, Aug. 3, 2018 that will form a part of the downstream cofferdam for the new lock under construction at Kentucky Dam, a Tennessee Valley Authority project. Lifting and setting this massive concrete shell represents a critical milestone towards completion of the new 1,200-foot-long navigation lock and involves techniques never previously attempted. This placement is part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District's Kentucky Lock Addition Project.
