Hannibal Locks and Dam comprises a nonnavigable gated dam with eight 110-ft-wide by 29-ft-high tainter gates, a 110-ft-long fixed-crest weir connecting the spillway to the left bank, and two parallel locks with clear chamber dimensions of 110 by 1200 ft and 110 by 600 ft, on the right bank, and a maximum lift of 21 ft. A 1120-scale, fixed-bed model, reproducing approximately 3.8 miles of the Ohio River, was used to determine flow conditions in the lock approaches and to develop modifications required to provide satisfactory navigation conditions.
