River Transit to Close
Annual maintenance of navigation locks next month will close river shipping between Bonneville Dam and Lewiston, Idaho.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will close its navigation locks at Bonneville, The Dalles, John Day and McNary dams on the Columbia, along with Ice Harbor, Lower Monumental, Little Goose and Lower Granite dams on the Snake River from March 7 through March 21.
The closure will begin at 6 a.m. March 7, with access restored to all the dams except Lower Monumental and Little Goose by 11:59 p.m. on March 21.
Additional work on the two Snake River dams will continue until they're reopened by 11:59 p.m. March
