Construction at McAlpine Locks and Dam halts river traffic

River traffic is stopped near the McAlpine Locks and Dam for most of Thursday.

The operations manager for the $430 million project says crews will be doing some blasting near the lock.

The river is expected to reopen at six Thursday night.

Construction began on the dam twelve years ago to make transportation more efficient.  The entire project is expected to be complete next spring.
