city paducah 300PADUCAH, Ky. (9/13/17) — The city of Paducah announced repairs to Lock and Dam No. 52 near Brookport, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has restricted flow on the Ohio River leading to an unusually low river stage.

The low stage is making it hazardous to launch a boat from either the foot of Broadway or the Ohio River Boat Launch located at North 6th and Burnett Streets. Boaters are advised not to launch until the Ohio River stage returns to at least 13 feet.
