The Army Corp. of Engineers is closing 5 river locks on the Illinois River from July 1 to October 31, 2020 for substantial repairs not allowing any barge traffic to pass. There will also be significant barge delays before and after the closures that will seriously impact the salt supply chain in Illinois for industrial and ice melt purposes.
It’s likely your current provider will have trouble meeting their customer needs, because of these lock closures and barge delays. We are ready to handle your business with the high quality salt you deserve.
