The lock system on the lower portion of the Upper Mississippi River has caused waterway congestion, causing some ships to wait from several hours to several days. The Army Corps of Engineers has been working on resolving this very large and complicated problem for some time, and this preliminary review by a committee in the National Research council includes recommendations on how the Corps of Engineers should proceed in developing modular spatial price models, managing waterway congestion, integrating systems planning to consider environmental issues, and creating funding. One recommendation is that the Corps of Engineers should extend their schedule to meet these concerns.
