Washington, D.C. - U.S. Representative Mike Kelly today announced that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will allocate $22 million to initiate construction of Montgomery lock as part of its 2021 work plan. Kelly released this statement on the welcome news:

“For too long this region's dams and locks that make our rivers usable for commerce have been neglected.
