​R3F Heavy Capacity Fleet Supports Markland Lock (LRL)

Published June 3, 2020

The Heavy Capacity Fleet Unit (HCF) completed work ahead of schedule at Greenup Locks and Dam (LRH) and arrived safely at Louisville Repair Station (LRS) on 02 June 2020. While the fleet was on its return trip from Greenup, a small land based crew mobilized to Markland Locks and Dam (LRL) to change out upper emergency gate cables in the Auxiliary Chamber.  Upon the return of the fleet to LRS they immediately went to work finishing up preparations for the upcoming dewatering of the North Chamber at Mcalpine Locks and Dam (LRL), removing and scrapping old miter gates and dewatering boxes from the site to make room for gate movements during the project.
