Picture of the Day: Dredger Hurley at Work

The USACE Memphis District’s dredger Hurley is currently supporting the Louisville District during the construction of the Olmsted Locks and Dam.

Also known as the Locks and Dam 52 and 53 Replacement Project, Olmsted Locks and Dam is under construction between Illinois and Kentucky about 17 miles upstream from the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi rivers.

The locks are complete and work on the dam continues. Olmsted will replace locks and dams 53 and 52 and greatly reduce tow and barge delays through the busiest stretch of river in America’s inland waterways.
