Exploring Indiana's Historic Sites,
Markers & Museums -
South East Edition




The Markland Locks and Dam are located on the Ohio River 6 miles East of Vevay connecting Indiana and Kentucky by bridge on Indiana State Road 156 to Kentucky State Road 42. The Markland Locks and Dam provide extra depth for the Ohio River, allowing year round barge and boat traffic. The locks allow barges to travel upstream and downstream. A bridge across the concrete dam allow motor traffic between Indiana and Kentucky. Cinergy operates a hydroelectric plant at the site, providing electric power for a portion of the region.
