Port of Lewiston Docks Busy
by Stephanie Smith
LEWISTON - After a two-week closure of the lock at the Dalles Dam slowed worked at the Port of Lewiston, it was back to business Friday.
The lock, which allows passage of more than 12 million tons of commodities between Portland and Lewiston, was closed for repairs after the Army Corps of Engineers found extensive cracking. The lock reopened earlier this week but the first barge didn't arrive in Lewiston until Thursday night.
Friday afternoon crews were busy loading containers on to barges.
