Staffing Could be Cut at Calcasieu Lock

The staff at the Calcasieu Lock could be cut by half within the next 18 months because less federal money could be allocated to its operation and maintenance, the Army Corps of Engineers says.

Lockmaster Kevin Galley told a ports group meeting this past week that traffic will experience slowdowns in going through the lock.
