The gates at Lock 4 are being repaired as part of an ongoing project to reopen more than 60 miles of the Kentucky River from Frankfort to the Ohio River.
The Kentucky River Authority is using $4 million in excess construction funds for repairs at locks 1, 2, 3 and 4 within the next two years, according to KRA Executive Director Jerry Graves.
The project will open 64 miles of the river from Frankfort Carrollton to boat traffic, Graves said.
