Dane County Tenney Boat Lock hours will be extended for the upcoming Labor Day weekend beginning Friday, Sept. 2nd through Monday, Sept. 5th. Labor Day is traditionally a very busy weekend for boating on the Yahara Chain of Lakes as the summer vacation season unofficially comes to an end.

The Tenney Lock is a popular recreation facility accommodating approximately 8-10 thousand boaters annually. Located on the Yahara River the lock allows for the passage of boats between Lake Mendota and Lake Monona.

The extended schedule is as follows:

Friday 9/2                                11:00 AM to 10:00 PM

Saturday 9/3                             10:00 AM to 10:00 PM
