Long river

delays possible

PITTSBURGH – Local recreational boaters are being alerted by the Pittsburgh District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to expect long delays on the Ohio River in some areas this weekend due to the closure of the primary lock chamber at Dashields Locks and Dam on the upper portion of the river.

The 110-foot-by-600-foot primary lock chamber was closed Monday for scheduled maintenance. The closure will continue until 11 p.m. Sept. 19, with all navigation traffic re-routed to the 56-foot-by-360-foot auxiliary lock chamber.

The primary lock chamber at Montgomery Locks and Dam downstream also will be closed from 12:01 a.m. this coming Monday until 11 p.m. Sept. 5.

Recreational boaters are discouraged from locking through Dashields and Montgomery locks and dams during the lock chamber closures.

Boaters will experience extremely long delays since priority will be given to commercial passenger vessels and commercial tows.
