Published May 15, 2017
BURBANK, Wash. – Ice Harbor Dam's navigation lock, located at Snake River Mile 9.7 near Burbank, Washington, will be temporarily out of service on Tuesday, May 16, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., according to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials in the Walla Walla District.

The 10-hour temporary closure is necessary, so workers can make critical adjustments to the navigation lock downstream gate machinery.

The Corps has notified commercial navigators and other stakeholders of the temporary closure. The Corps coordinates navigation maintenance with inland shippers and cruise lines to achieve minimal impact to the various industries that use the locks. Public Notices and other navigation lock information are available on the Walla Walla District website at http://www.nww.usace.army.mil/Missions/Navigation/.
