About Willow Island Lock and Dam
Willow Island Locks and Dam replaces three obsolete locks and dams and provides a navigable pool to Hannibal Locks & Dam on the Ohio River. This facility is located on the Ohio River, 161.7 miles downstream from Pittsburgh, PA, and 3.4 miles upstream from Waverly, WV. It replaced Locks and Dams No. 15, 16 and 17.

Construction began in January 1967 and the total project is 100 percent complete. The locks construction contract was awarded in October 1968 and placed in operation in January 1972. Dam construction was initiated in December 1971 and completed in 1976. The pool was raised to full height in September 1975.
