Photo of the Week – Markland Locks and Dam
KENTUCKY — Chris Rutledge, Louisville District project engineer, indicates where the pin carrier is attached to hooks to transport the 800-pound pins made of nickel clad carbon steel with a chrome overlay at the Markland Locks and Dam here, Feb. 10, 2011. In remarkably good shape after a decade securing a culvert valve to its housing within one of the main chamber recesses, the pins are being replaced as part of a Recovery Act-funded project to fit the lock with new valves.The carrier is the creation of Aquarius Marine, the Kentucky based subcontractor doing the ARRA-funded work.
