Repair work begins at Lock 10


Dan Burger, top, and Kim Wenger, bottom, got a head start on repairs at Lock 10 last week, just before the official end of navigation season. Burger and Wenger are members of the Army Corps of Engineers maintenance and repair crew out of Fountain City, Wis. (Press photo by Molly Moser)

By Molly Moser

When a barge struck the wall just inside Lock 10 this summer, just as many others have over the past eight decades, the aging steel and concrete gave way and a very large piece broke free. There were no injuries and no harm was done to the commercial vessel, but repairs are now underway to fix the damage.
