    • LNM: Good News: NO Width Restriction, St. Lucie Lock, OWW Statute Mile 15 Plus Revision


      St. Lucie Lock, the easternmost Okeechobee lock, lies west of Stuart, FL at Okeechobee Waterway Statute Mile 15. Our thanks to Specialist Erica Skolte for this latest good news re width restriction.

      2/19/19 Quick note with good news—
      Lake Okeechobee Levels are back up on web: http://w3.saj.usace.army.mil/h2o/currentLL.shtml with Route 1 and 2 depths; also, issues at St. Lucie have been resolved by the team and there is no longer a width restriction. Of course, we still ask that you call the lock operator to let them know you will be locking through prior to your approach. Save travels, all!
      Erica
