Photo of the Week
November 16, 2014
We are going to take a detour this week with some new images that came
in from CZ Images contributor Bill Fall. The question is..How BIG
are the new locks gates? Well Bill had a chance to actually stand
by one recently and here is (photo above) Bill and a new gate.
WOW!! This is impressive!
Below are a series of other images that Bill sent me. First below
is the underside of the new gate. Second is a scale drawing that
Bill uses in his slide shows while doing presentations on cruise
ships. Third is a mosaic that Bill put together with web cam captures off the internet showing them moving one of these gates into
Bill noted in his
The blue multi wheeled vehicles take them off the barge and down the
ramp to the lock chamber. The dock is temp and will be removed
when the locks are completed.
Bill is showing in his drawing a comparison of the tallest
current in use gate is the Pacific sea gate at 82 ft. and the one for
the expansion locks is 108 ft.
Thanks for sending these
great images in Bill.
