Cheatham Lock and Dam
About the Project
Cheatham Lock is located at Mile 148.6 on the Cumberland River in Cheatham County, Tennessee and is approximately 10 miles northwest of Ashland City, Tenn. Due to geological conditions in the area, the site selected for construction presented unique challenges on designing the project. This is the only lock in the Nashville District that was designed to flood; the lock walls had to be built according to the elevations of the surrounding land. Thus, create a design so that flood waters could flow over the structure with minimal damage when waters receded.
The work consisted of furnishing a floating plant, equipment, supplies, and labor to complete repair and painting of 7 double skin plated Tainter Gates (interior and exterior) and 1 Bulkhead lifting beam at Cheatham Lock and Dam. Additional work covered included fabrication, painting and installation of 2 sets of downstream bulkhead seal angles.
