New London, Missouri

• Dam Width: 3,290 Feet Overall, 1,024 Foot Wide Dam Structure.
• River Elevation (Pool): 459.5 Feet.
• River Elevation (Outflow): 450.3 Feet.

Lock & Dam #22 is located in the town of New London, Missouri. While it is an important structure for maintaining river traffic flow, the lock is too small for modern river tows. The larger tows have to break up into smaller tows in order to move all the barges through the lock. This process can take hours. As a result, traffic several days old can get backed up at a Lock & Dam structure.
