LOCK CLOSURE

REFERENCE:
a.     33 CFR Navigation and Navigable Waters

1. Notice to Navigation

Notice is given that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is notifying the public, marinas, commercial and recreational vessels that St. Lucie Lock will be closed for maintenance 2 January 2022 to 31 March 2022. This will be the first total closure in 10 years. Maintenance is necessary to repair aging and damaged infrastructure in addition to improving public and vessel safety. Repairs will require the lock chamber to be dewatered for crews to perform inspections, replace corroded steel structures, paint, install new gate seals, and repair Manatee Protection System components. During the closure, barges, floating cranes and divers will be working in the lock entrance requiring vessel operators in the area to use minimal speed and caution for safety.
