HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — Because of low water levels, the Huntington District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will limit recreational boat lockage on the Ohio and Kanawha Rivers.
Until conditions abate, navigation locks on the Ohio (Meldahl, R.C. Byrd, Racine, Belleville and Willow Island Locks) and Kanawha Rivers (Winfield, Marmet and London Locks) will only lock recreational craft on even-numbered hours (2, 4, etc.).
Traffic will also be delayed locking through the Greenup Locks on the Ohio River while maintenance work is being done in the main chamber. River traffic will continue to lock through the 600-foot-long auxiliary chamber. Until the scheduled maintenance is completed, Greenup will only lock recreational craft at noon and 4 p.m., unless traffic patterns allow additional lockages.
