  • Green River Dam No. 5 removal work temporarily halted while crews perform additional surveys

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District has temporarily halted work on the removal of the Green River Lock and Dam No. 5 on the Green River in Kentucky, while additional surveys are performed. Due to concerns from the Edmonson County Water District, USACE stopped further removal of the dam until the impacts can be evaluated and addressed. USACE is coordinating with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, The Nature Conservancy, and the Edmonson County Water District to perform additional surveys and develop recommendations on any necessary steps to address changes to Edmonson County Water District operations and facilitate the eventual full removal of Lock and Dam #5.

  • MacArthur Lock opening after seasonal maintenance, extended repair

    The Soo Locks’ MacArthur Lock will open to marine traffic June 19, 2022, after completing a critical repair that took longer than expected. The MacArthur lock was set to reopen in late April but replacing the almost 79-year-old tainter valve machinery, original to the lock built in 1943, caused the closure’s 59-day extension. “The tainter valve machinery replacement contract was a very large task,” Soo Locks Construction Chief Nicholas Pettit said. “The original machinery had to be cut into pieces and removed by crane out through a small access tunnel. The new machinery had to be fabricated in sections, lowered by crane in through the small tunnel and installed inside of the lock.”

  • Corps of Engineers expedites Muskegon Harbor dredging, could begin Friday
