    All the ice could be part of the problem.

    I'd think it would clear at least occasionally before April so something else must be happening.

    Found the bulletin on the Corps website.

    I can't help but wonder what this will do to the price of fuel and grain? I know there are grain elevators and fuel docks on each side of it but loading and unloading onto either rail or trucks cost. Also what about the massive build-up of ice thats gonna happen? Oh well we are filthy rich under this administration so peon consumers like myself shouldn't worry.

    Yes, I think read somewhere that they were replacing one of the lock gates.
