Dissemination of lock outage information

A Wisconsin (or Minnesota - it's unclear from their website) radio station posts that "the navigation season is being held up on the Mississippi River" due to maintenance at a "lock and dam at St. Louis."  I don't have details which lock and dam - there are two close by, L/D 27 and Mel Price - and I'll try to look at the St. Louis District website and other places and see what's available.

This is just the sort of information that the Lock Operations Management Application (LOMA ) is designed to gather and disseminate to mariners and other waterway users and stakeholders.  LOMA will also assist those scheduling maintenance in determining how they can minimize impact on navigation.  I'll be posting more on LOMA in the near future.
