1 Illinois The state of Illinois borders or contains over 1,000 miles of the inland waterway system. The state s western border is defined by 580 miles of the upper River. The Illinois Waterway flows for more than 300 miles, from Lake Michigan diagonally across the state joining the upper River at mile 217. The Kaskaskia River is also a part of the River system; it is navigable for 36 miles and flows into the upper River at mile 117. The Ohio River forms 133 miles of the southern border of Illinois from mile 848 at the Indiana border through mile 981 at the River. The northeastern portion of the state has 63 miles of lake shoreline and borders a vital area of Lake Michigan. The docks on Lake Michigan ship and receive commodities primarily on deep-draft ships.

There are 15 navigation projects in the portion of the River bordering Illinois. Four of these projects feature two lock chambers. The southernmost projects, Locks and Dam 27 and Melvin Price Locks and Dam have 110 x1200 main chambers and 110 x600 auxiliary chambers. Locks and Dam 15 has a 110 x600 main chamber and a 110 x360 auxiliary chamber. Locks and Dam 14 has a 110 x600 main chamber and an 80 x320 auxiliary that is over 80 years old and is used almost exclusively for locking recreation craft on a seasonal basis. Lock and Dam 19 has a single 110 x1200 chamber. The other Upper River locks that border Illinois (12, 13, 16, 17, 18, 20, 21, 22, 24, and 25) each have single 110 x600 chambers.

5 The Illinois Waterway system has nine single chamber lock and dam projects. The seven projects on the main part of the waterway have single 110 x 600 lock chambers and are over 60 years old. Thomas J. O Brien Lock and Dam on the Calumet River has a 110 x1000 chamber. Chicago Lock is an 80 x600 lock chamber in the Chicago River Control Works in Chicago Harbor Channel. Most barge traffic moving to and from Lake Michigan uses the O Brien Lock. Chicago Lock handles mostly passenger and recreational vessels. There are three navigation projects on the Ohio River bordering Illinois. They are Locks and Dam 53, Locks and Dam 52, and Smithland Locks and Dam.
