LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - The navigation season ends Monday on the Wisconsin portion of the Mississippi River.

The water is not frozen yet – but the Army Corps of Engineers needs to do some repair work.

A renovation and maintenance project begins today on Lock and Dam Number 6 at Trempealeau, between La Crosse and Winona.

The work is expected to be finished by March 11th, before next season’s boat traffic begins on the Mississippi.

This season is closing two days earlier than a year ago.
