Navigation Notice AMENDMENT to LRN 23-05: Kentucky Lock, at TN River Mile 22.4 intermittent closures

Nashville District Technical Support Branch
Published Feb. 3, 2023

For construction activities to continue preparing for the placement of downstream monoliths of the new chamber, crews will need to place a tower crane on monolith M26 on the downstream end of the lock. The proximity of the placement of this tower crane prevents the existing lock chamber to be open to navigation traffic during placement.
USACE Construction will need to exercise a series of two to four, four-hour lock closures February 13-17, 2023 to accomplish this placement. Timeframe of the closure will be decided each day according to current conditions at the site.
