Construction continues apace on the new lock at Chickamauga Lock and Dam. Capt. Joseph Cotton, the Nashville Engineer District’s project manager, gave Tennessee River Valley Association members an update at their meeting in October; he said 200,000 cubic yards of concrete of the 250,000 that will be needed have already been placed. The project, though, is just about 46 percent complete. This photo shows the lock as of September. (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers photo)
