POE LOCK EMPTYING DELAYS
ST. MARYS FALLS CANAL

 

 

  1. The Poe Lock in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan is currently operating with one empty valve due to a hydraulic cylinder failure.  This will add approximately 15 minutes to the lock empty time.  It is estimated that the repair will require three to four weeks to complete.  The Lock will be returned to full service as soon as the work can be completed.

 

  1. Questions regarding this notice may be directed to the Soo Area Engineer, Mr. Kevin Sprague at 906-635-3464. Our internet address is: http://www.lre.usace.army.mil.Missions/Operations.aspx
