Today’s Key Issues

  • Meldahl Locks and Dam (OR 436) Main chamber repairs will begin 5/17 and run through 6/29. Will use the Auxiliary chamber. Expect intermittent full closures TBA.
  • Cheatham Locks and Dam Full Closure (CR 149) Full closure for repairs will run through 7/15 with intermittent openings to clear the queue. Next 3 day opening to run traffic through the lock will be 6-25-21 to 6-28-21.
  • Warrior-Tom Closure for Lock Repairs – Maintenance will close the Warrior-Tom at Bankhead and Oliver Locks 6/24 through 7/23. This is a full 30-day closure which will cut-off access to Birmingham and Tuscaloosa.
  • Gulf and Canals Weather Update – Intermittent seasonal rain/storms will continue to impact operations through the weekend. That said, improved seas will allow for crossing bays and sounds on the canals to close out the week.
