Update on Poonamalie Lock 32 Repairs
According to a Parks Canada press release this week, the first phase of historic stone masonry repairs at Poonamalie Lock 32 is nearing completion. Work will finalize with site restoration in mid-May.
The cofferdam upstream of the lock has now been removed. Stone replacement, repointing, and grouting is complete on the upstream and downstream wing walls, while stone replacement and repointing continues on the west wall within the lock. While much of the scaffolding has been removed from around the lock, the remaining scaffolding will be removed in early May.
