$35 million Marseilles dam repair approved

NT Staff

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will provide full funding for the second phase of the Marseilles Lock and Dam repair project, which will ultimately lead to the project's completion. The Corps announced $35 million for the repair, the office of U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Channahon) announced.   

"This project is of vital importance to the people of Marseilles and the region, and its immediate full funding represents a big win in terms of getting the repairs done quickly and efficiently. I thank all the people who worked with my office to make this project a priority, and look forward to seeing the lock and dam fully operational again."   

Since the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers released its repairs estimate for Phase II, which includes permanent repairs to the dam, Congressman Kinzinger has made achieving full funding a top priority.

"Through official requests to USACE officers and U.S Army Civil Works leaders, Rep. Kinzinger has articulated the importance of the project to the region and people of Marseilles who rely on the lock and dam for commerce and flood protection," his office says.
