      Great Bridge Lock is located in Great Bridge, VA. Your alternate southbound ICW route during these 12hr closures will be the Dismal Swamp Canal which departs the Waterway at statute mile 7.2. Your northbound alternate would be northeast up the Pasquatank River to Elizabeth City and into the southern end of the Dismal Swamp Canal.

      I pulled this from the Army Corps website. I haven’t seen anything from the CG yet.

      Great Bridge Lock Phase 1 of 2 valve replacement

      The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will perform valve replacement and diving at Great Bridge Lock in Chesapeake, Virginia, starting Feb. 20 and concluding around March 16. The following information is provided:

      1) Installation of a cofferdam on the lock wall’s northeast end will occur Feb. 20-21. The lock will be closed 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. both days.

      2) From Feb. 25 to around March 16, a crew will be working on removal and installation of the replacement valve seven days a week. During this time period, there will be occasional delays to navigation to provide crane support in the lock.

      3) During the week of March 19, removal and relocation of the cofferdam will take place. The exact time and closure will be announced in a separate “Notice to Navigation Interests” next month.

      The lock’s horizontal clearance will be limited to 70 feet during these repairs. Vessels shall provide a large berth to the work area, which will be marked with a yellow safety beam on the lock wall.
