This week, the Illinois Corn Growers Association and Illinois Corn Marketing Board visited the Olmsted Lock and Dam.  Construction on this project began in 1996 and STILL CONTINUES TODAY!  In fact, the Army Corps of Engineers will go back to Congress for more money to finish this project as cost and time overruns mount.  If approved, the additional funded needed to finish Olmsted will guarantee that no new locks, dams or repairs can occur for the next ten years.
