    America celebrates innovation at Olmsted dedication

    Lt. Gen. Todd Semonite, the 54th Chief of Engineers and Commanding General of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, provides remarks during the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Olmsted Locks and Dam, Aug. 30, in Olmsted, IL. The ceremony hosted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Louisville District included a ceremonial lock through and the dedication of the wicket lifter barge. The Olmsted Locks and Dam project, which is replacing two older locks 52 and 53, will bring reliable navigation to the Ohio River offering millions of dollars of economic gains annually. The Olmsted Locks and Dam is the largest Corps project since the Panama Canal. It consists of two 110-foot by 1,200-foot locks, which are located adjacent to the Illinois bank and a dam comprised of five tainter gates, which control the amount of water that flows downstream. Additionally, there are 140 wickets and a fixed weir.
