John H. Overton Lock and Dam Dewatering
191102-A-A1415-0001 A commercial vessel transits through the John H. Overton Lock and Dam, located on the Red River near Alexandria, Louisiana, Nov. 2, following the reopening of the lock after a complete dewatering of the structure by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Vicksburg District. The district began the dewatering operation in September 2019. The dewatering of the lock and dam allowed district engineers and technical experts to inspect the lock chamber’s components, perform maintenance and make repairs. Since the construction of the lock and dam in 1982, the lock chamber has never been completely dewatered.
