Tow rail installation
The new tow rail is installed at Lock and Dam 6 in Trempealeau, Wis., February 2020. As opposed to the previous towrail system, the new rail is a continuous 555 foot-long segment where the sections were thermite welded together prior to installation. The resulting piece results in a smooth run for the travel along when pulling barges upriver out of the lock chamber.
