Kentucky Lock and Dam project to receive $110 million
28 Jan 2021
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will dedicate $110 million to the Kentucky Lock and Dam project this year, U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell said.
Congress authorized the improvement project in 1996 and when completed, the larger lock will essentially eliminate delays, which are among the longest in the country, McConnell said Monday in a statement.
Matt Ricketts, chairman of Waterways Council Inc., said the funding will assure an efficient continuation of critical parts of the project.
