    • LNM: Monthly Lock Maintenance Closures, OWW and South Florida

      South Florida lock closures on the last Thursday of the month from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m.



      1. 33 CFR Navigation and Navigable Waters


      1. Notice to Navigation


      The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) South Florida Operations Office (SFOO) manages and operates five navigation locks and dams along the Okeechobee Waterway:  St. Lucie Lock & Dam at Stuart, Port Mayaca Lock & Dam near Canal Point, Moore Haven Lock & Dam at Moore Haven, Ortona Lock & Dam near LaBelle and W. P. Franklin Lock & Dam near Ft. Myers. The SFOO also manages the Canaveral Lock at Canaveral Harbor, Florida.


      To provide increased safety to the public, all locks will be closed on the last Thursday of each month from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. for monthly safety training for lock operators, maintenance crew and administration. This will allow the morning lock traffic to clear before the closure and prevent delays for the afternoon boating traffic.


      We appreciate boaters’ patience, so USACE can continue to provide the highest level of navigation safety while transiting the South Florida locks.
