May 3, 2016

On April 25, 2016, Rep. Chuck Fleischmann joined the Army Corps of Engineers for an update and to observe the restart of work on Chickamauga Dam’s new lock. 

As a House Appropriator, Fleischmann has worked tirelessly to ensure that this project would receive the nearly $30 million needed for fiscal year 2016.  Construction on the new lock provides relief for many worried about the condition of the current lock, which was built in the 1930s.
