In Phase I of this study, a condition survey was made of Troy Lock and Dam. Analysis of the condition survey gives adequate information for sound engineering decisions needed for developing a proposal for the total evaluation of the lock and dam, which is to be accomplished in Phase II. Initial observations of Troy Lock and Dam gave misleading impressions of structural deficiencies. The Phase I study revealed that the interior concrete of the lock is sound and of sufficient strength. The cracking of the concrete in the lock is negligible and is insignificant in the dam and gated spillway except for a the pier where the access to the dam tunnel on the powerhouse side of the river is located and b the piers of the gated section. If it is assumed that the structural evaluations in the Phase II study reveal no serious deficiencies and that the concrete in the dam and gated spillway can be effectively repaired and preventative measures implemented, the lock, dam, and gated spillway are structurally adequate and can be repaired. The Phase I study indicates that repair is highly feasible if the deficiencies listed can be economically corrected.
