Montgomery Locks and Dam
A lock operator for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District supervises a crew locking through the navigation chamber at Montgomery Locks and Dam in Monaca, Pennsylvania, Oct. 25, 2023. Public affairs specialists from across the Great Lakes and Ohio River Division came to the Pittsburgh District to train on their photography and multimedia skills during the first regional visual storytelling workshop hosted by the district’s public affairs office. The navigation facility at Montgomery is part of the Upper Ohio Navigation Project, a multi-billion-dollar construction project that will replace locks at Emsworth, Dashields, and Montgomery locks and dams. The project will replace the auxiliary chamber at each site, measuring 56 feet wide by 360 feet long, with locks measuring 110 feet wide by 600 feet long.
