PORTLAND, Ore. --
Bonneville Lock is closed to all river traffic due to an issue with the downstream lock gate. Lock operators observed issues closing the gate Thursday afternoon and, after inspection, determined that continuing operation posed the possibility of damage to other lock components. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District is actively working to determine the cause and to restore lock operation as quickly and safely as possible.
