The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is closing two more locks on the Mississippi River due to flooding.
The corps earlier this week closed locks at Canton, Quincy, Ill., and Saverton, as the river began flooding for the second time in just over a month. The agency on Friday closed the lock at Clarksville. The lock at Winfield will close Saturday.
Corps officials say closure is not anticipated at the Mel Price Lock and Dam at Alton, Ill., and the lock at Granite City, Ill. Both are near St. Louis.
Forecasts call for the Mississippi River to reach around 10 feet above flood stage by this weekend at some locations north of St. Louis.
