KAUKAUNA - A team of experts gathered to find a solution to fix the broken Menasha Lock.

The Fox River Navigational System Authority consulted the Army Corps of Engineers, Lunda Construction, and engineering experts from OMNNI to assist.

The team of experts will modify the hinge design and the on-going maintenance routine protocols against future breakdowns.

They estimate four to six weeks of work to restore the lock back to full operation.

The lock has been closed since 4th of July weekend due to a broken hinge.
