If you’re looking for something that’s not your ordinary Independence Day activity, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has the answer. The Russellville Project Office offers a series of free lock tours, July 3-5. They highlight the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System and the hydropower and recreational opportunities offered.
Here is the lock tour schedule:
The Murray Lock Tour will meet near the Big Dam Bridge at Cook’s Landing in North Little Rock. The Dardanelle Lock Tour will meet at the Arkansas River Visitor Center in Russellville. The Ormond Lock, Ozark Lock, and Trimble Lock tours will meet in front of each lock and dam’s gated entrance.
