Work underway at Ice Harbor dam

Boaters at Ice Harbor Dam will need to be patient. Work on a valve will slow passage for boaters going through the Snake river in the coming weeks. The repairs to a tainter valve, which helps drain the lock, will increase lock time by about 15-20 minutes, according to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
