Boat traffic on Ohio River expected to resume Wednesday evening

Posted: Updated:
Brookport, IL -

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.
