Broken Lock Gate Slows Ohio River Traffic
Listen to the Story
Ohio River traffic might start moving again Sunday southeast of Portsmouth where crews have been working to stabilize a 240-ton damaged lock gate.
Peggy Noel of the U-S army Corps of Engineers at Huntington, W.Va. says the gate at the Green-up lock, damaged Wednesday, will take several weeks to repair.
Noel says an auxiliary lock will handle traffic for the next few weeks while work continues on the main gate.
