MARTIN COUNTY --

The St. Lucie lock will be partially closed for new bridge construction. The closure is between South Fork at the Indian Street Bridge between Stuart and Palm City.

There will be a daily waterway closure from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. starting Feb. 11 through March 4. The waterway will be closed in both directions during these hours.

Mariners should operate vessels with caution in the area due to potential for floating debris, increased traffic due to the operation, and large equipment working in and along the waterway.

The St. Lucie lock was built in 1941 for navigation and flood control purposes. The lock is located along the St. Lucie Canal, approximately 15.5 miles upstream from the intersection of the St. Lucie River and the Intracoastal Waterway.

The Jacksonville District constructed and currently operates five locks along the Okeechobee Waterway.

For more information regarding the closure, call (863) 235-1158.
