URGENT Lock Information & Updates

​​2017 Recreational Boating Season
From time to time, because of the age and condition of the locks, USACE encounters some unexpected issues that required immediate attention.
When these disruptions do happen, USACE will inform ARDC of the issue, and in turn, we will post the notification on this page, as well as on our Facebook page at Allegheny River Development Corporation.
To ensure a pleasant boating experience, please check either resources before your anticipated lock use.
Be safe and enjoy the beautiful Allegheny River.

Allegheny Hydro, LP, operators of the hydro plants at Locks 8 & 9 will be replacing a damaged section of the flashboards at AR Lock 9, river conditions permitting, during the weeks between July 24, and August 4, 2017, between the hours of 6 AM and 6 PM.  Please exercise caution and act out of concern for Allegheny Hydro employees as they perform these repairs.
