The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District in Texas, began adjusting operations at the Colorado River Locks and Brazos River Floodgates, April 1, 2013, to limit gate swings from opening on demand to opening every hour on the hour for recreational vessels only. Pictured here, a 72-foot-wide tow enters the east lock of the Colorado River Locks. The USACE Galveston District's locks provide navigation access through the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, assisting vessels crossing the intersection of the Colorado River.
