La Grange Lock Partial Closure to Impact Grain Shipments

Repair scheduled to begin in June and be completed by August

Due to necessary repairs, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has scheduled a partial closure of La Grange Lock on the Illinois Waterway (IW) this summer. The repair work will stop traffic during a 10-hour period and re-open for a 14-hour period each day. This may slow grain barge movements as farmers sell off stored grain in anticipation of the harvest of 2017-18 crops.
