The Inner Harbor Navigation Canal Lock—commonly known as Industrial Canal Lock—is a navigation lock in New Orleans. Originally constructed in 1923 by the Port of New Orleans, it connects the Lower Mississippi River to the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW) via the Industrial Canal. The federal government purchased the lock from the Port of New Orleans in 1986. Operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, over 15 million tons of cargo pass through the 640×75 ft lock each year.
