NAV ALERT: LNM: USACE: OWW Closure Jan 2-March 31, 2022
This total closure of St Lucie Lock, the first total closure in 10 years, essentially closes Okeechobee Waterway for three months. Cruisers needing to go from coast to coast during this time will need to loop around the Keys, adding days to a float plan.
Thanks Larry for getting the word out so folks can plan. Maintenance repairs are important as emergency closures are longer and more expensive… like making sure you get an oil change/check the levels vs. blowing up your engine! Our folks work long and hard hours to do the dewater and repairs, and do everything they possibly can to get it reopened ASAP!
