Okeechobee, FL - For boaters navigating to and from Lake Okeechobee, a temporary closure of the S-135 navigation lock at J&S Fish Camp in Martin County has been scheduled for Monday, Sept. 25. This closure will last one day and is necessary to complete maintenance work for the lock that began in August.
The S-135 is one of four navigation locks on the north shore of the lake to undergo routine maintenance. Work has already been completed at the G-36 lock at Henry Creek in Okeechobee County and the S-127 lock at Buckhead Ridge in Glades County.
Maintenance work scheduled for Sept. 7 for the S-131 lock at Lakeport in Glades County was postponed due to preparations for Hurricane Irma. It will be rescheduled for a later date.
