Kentucky Lock and Dam #9 – Jessamine County, Kentucky

Jessamine County, Kentucky

Kentucky River Authority

2007 - 2009



This project consisted of the replacement of Lock and Dam #9 on the Kentucky River with a new sheet pile dam.  The new dam consists of eight steel sheet pile circular cells with seven inch steel sheet pile connector cells.  The cells were filled with concrete that was produced by a batch plant set-up near the site solely for supplying the project.  The project also included a drilled shaft closure cell that was filled with concrete.

Upon completion of the new dam, portions of the existing lock and dam were demolished.  The lock gates were removed and preserved on-site for their historical significance.
