BURBANK — The Ice Harbor Dam navigation lock will be closed to all recreational traffic starting Monday for channel maintenance work. The lock will reopen Friday evening.
Commercial navigation traffic will be allowed only during evening hours. The lock will be closed to commercial traffic beginning at 5:45 a.m. and ending at 5:30 p.m.
During the closure, a contractor will remove the rocks and earthen materials during daylight hours to bring the channel to the required operating depth. The Corps awarded a $254,680.89 contract on Oct. 31 to LKE Corp. of Washougal, Wash., to perform the work.
Recreational boaters can still access the river daily downstream and upstream of Ice Harbor from nearby boat launches.
