Repaving activities to be conducted at Locks and Dams 6 and 7 this summer

Published May 31, 2019

ST. PAUL, Minn. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, will limit public access to Lock and Dam 6 in Trempealeau, Wisconsin, and Lock and Dam 7 in La Crescent, Minnesota, this summer while access roads and parking areas are repaired, resealed and restriped.

At both facilities, the work will require intermittent road and parking lot closures during the months of June for repair, August for seal coating and September for striping and marking. Construction periods barriers will be placed and flagmen will be used to direct and detour traffic.

At Lock and Dam 6 the observation deck and marina will remain accessible.

At Lock and Dam 7, paving work will limit access to the visitor center, observation deck and boat dock. The exact closure dates are weather dependent and notices will be posted locally. The nearby boat ramp will remain open.

The sites will be considered construction zones, so the public is asked to be alert and follow the warning signs and flagger directions. 

Lock operations will not be affected.
