The downstream gates of the Eureka Lock on the Ocklawaha River. The lock and most of the dam was built except for the section of dam across the river channel. The Eureka dam and lock were part of the Cross Florida Barge Canal that was partially built in the 1960s, then cancelled in the early 70s. This photograph was made during a drawdown of the Rodman Reservoir, as can be seen by the watermarks on the structure.
