PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — The Peoria Lock & Dam is now officially open.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced Wednesday the lock & dam is now open for navigation, but may need additional 8-hour closures in the near future.

The maintenance on the Peoria Lock & Dam began back in July. You can find our coverage here.
