Chickamauga Lock – Construction

$26,000,000

Posted on March 26, 2010

Funding for this project would be used to continue construction on the Chickamauga Lock located just north of Chattanooga. The current Lock moves 2.4 million tons of cargo up and down the Tennessee River every year, and has an unmet cargo demand of an additional 4.3 million tons annually. Because cargo traffic currently carried by truck could be transported by water after this project is complete, this project would take more than 100,000 tractor trailer trucks off I-75 between Chattanooga and Knoxville each year.
