Update on lock closures

A change has been made to the schedule for closures at the Jerry F. Costello Lock and Dam.

The Kaskaskia River Project noted that the dewatering of the lock has been delayed by one week due to high river levels.

The start date for the project is now Aug. 6; however, prep work, diving and staging of equipment will take place July 31 through Aug. 5, requiring daytime lock closures to all traffic from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. The lock will be available those days from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.

The lock will be closed completely from Aug. 6-27.
