R3F Heavy Capacity Fleet – Olmsted Wicket Box Fabrication

Published Feb. 24, 2017

Louisville District called upon the Rivers Regional Repair Fleet (R3F) Heavy Capacity Fleet (HCF) to fabricate the Olmsted Locks and Dam maintenance wicket boxes.  Using the HCF instead of a fabrication contract was chosen based on the need to have total control of delivery schedule and quality, the HCF's reputation for successful fabrication of custom steel structures to support wicket dam work at Locks and Dams 52 and 53, and the desire to maintain internal fabrication and welding competencies.
