|UPSTREAM MOORING CELLS
Brandon Road Lock & Dam, RM 286.0 R
The Brandon Road mooring cells are now available to industry for the temporary use of vessels while waiting for lockage through Brandon Road Lock or for waiting out flow discharges from the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District at Lockport during periods of high flow rates. The cells are not to be used for fleeting purposes or unattended storage of barges. The mooring cells are located northwest and on the right descending side of Brandon Road Lock’s upper pool.
The base of Cell Number 7, the seventh cell in the row heading toward the lock, remains beneath the water surface with insufficient depth to pass over it.
Use CAUTION when mooring to any of the mooring cells.
