A 170 physical navigation model was built to replicate the Matagorda Locks, approximately one mile of the GIWW east of the locks, approximately one-half mile of the Colorado River north of the GIWW, approximately one-half mile of the Diversion Channel south of the GIWW, and the Bypass Channel connecting the GIWW with the old Colorado River Channel. This report describes plans evaluated with this model to improve navigation through the Colorado River-GIWW intersection and also the GIWW as it passes the opening to the Bypass Channel.
