Lock 16 - Muscatine County
GPS Coordinates: 41.4253682866906, -91.0096478462219
Description: Although the viewing area is in IL, the river channel swings to the east side of the river for the lock which means that most of the birds are in IA.
Habitat: The road runs on top of the dike and provides lookouts to the river as well as the lock property. Gulls will roost on the lock structures and diving birds raft above the dam.
Directions: At Muscatine, Muscatine Co. Cross the bridge over into Illinois from downtown, on Hwy. 92. Take the first road upriver 1.3 miles to the dam.
