Boat traffic on Ohio River expected to resume Wednesday evening

The Ohio River between Dam 52 and the Smithland Locks and Dam is expected to be open to boat traffic sometime between 9:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m.

The Army Corps of Engineers originally expected the water traffic closure to last a few days.

The closure started about 5:00 a.m. Wednesday.

Crews were making repairs on three wickets.

The water had to be lowered about four feet, making it too low for boat traffic.
