Lock # 14 , Dam all out
[At the Newburgh Lock and Dam, I've seen them open both sets of gates on the lock to allow more room for the river to flow downstream. I even saw a tow go upstream against that heavy current. But the tow stopped for a long time in the lock anyhow. Do they do a lot of paper work during a normal lock operation that still has to be done even when it is a straight shot through the lock?]

There is a reason it's called the Mighty Mississippi. The volume of water flowing through the lock and dams is amazing. This is Lock and Dam 14 on the Illinois side.
