The Upper Monongahela River Association (UMRA) announced the hours the Hildebrand and Opekiska locks will open for the 2018 boating and fishing season. This is a special opportunity to see two pools of the Monongahela River that are inaccessible because they lack public boat ramps. UMRA has again teamed with local agencies to raise funds and negotiate with the Corps of Engineers to open the locks at Opekiska and Hildebrand for 14 days this summer. The Morgantown lock is always open from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. daily. For only the following dates, Opekiska and Hildebrand will open at 7 a.m. and close at 4 p.m. On all three locks, the last lockthrough will be 30 minutes prior to closing.
