It is proposed that the hours of availability at Lindy C. Boggs and John H. Overton Locks on the J Bennett Johnston Waterway (Red River) will remain at the current schedule of 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year. It is also proposed that the hours of availability at Lock 3, Russell B. Long, and Joe D. Waggonner locks will be reduced from the current schedule of 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year, to 20 hours per day, as operated by the contractor, 7 days per week, 365 days per year. The Inland Marine Transportation System Level of Service Guidelines led to the reduced hours of operation for Lock 3, Russell B. Long, and Joe D. Waggonner locks. The intended effect is to provide lock availability that matches existing lock usage. Pool levels will not be affected by change of operating hours.
