The historic Philo Lock #9 is open again after receiving repairs.

It temporarily closed when a concrete wall collapsed back in February. The Ohio Department of Transportation says only some minor work remains on the project, which deals with land-based construction.

Ellis Lock #11 near Dresden still remains closed and has for the past decade.

These historic locks, located along the Muskingum River are operated by Ohio State Parks. They were built back in the 1840’s and still need to be operated by hand.
