    • LNM: AICW MM 12, Repair Closures beginning Feb 9, Great Bridge Lock, Great Bridge VA

      The Great Bridge Lock will be closed to navigation from 7:00 AM to approximately 7:00 PM, Feb 9-11. Your alternate southbound ICW route during these closures will be the Dismal Swamp Canal which departs the southbound 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. 



      The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will be performing valve replacement and diving operations at the Great Bridge Lock on the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway, Albemarle and Chesapeake Canal located in Chesapeake, Virginia, starting on February 9, 2021 and concluding approximately April 2, 2021.
      1) From February 9, 2021 to February 11, 2021, installation of a cofferdam on the north west end of lock wall will occur. The Great Bridge Lock will be closed from 7:00 AM to approximately 7:00 PM on these 3 days. February 12, 2021 will be used as contingency date in the event of any adverse weather or other unexpected delays.
      2) From February 15, 2021 to approximately April 5, 2021, a crew will be working on the removal and installation of the replacement valve 7 days per week. During this time period, there will be occasional delays to navigation to allow for crane support in the lock.
