Can confirm it's open as we've just been into Epernay from the Mareuil-sur-Ay direction.

The closure is on the Lateral à la Marne. The pound upstream of the Mareuil su Ay lock -in the direction of Chalons en Champagne - PK 53 to PJ 58 is empty of water and is being repaired. The last date I saw for re-opening is June 2, but I would not absolutely count on that date. The VNF AVis is FR/2022/D1534. I reported this in the Continental Waterways section back in I think both April and May. It may also be in Stoppages. You can get to Epernay from the Paris direction, but not from the Chalons en Champagne direction, at this time. VNF recommends the website www.sif-seine.fr for current closure info. I haven't tried it but they are definitely pushing it for Seine bassin waterways. Computers only, not phones, I believe.

We have been told that there is a lock closure at Epernay on Canal lateral a la Marne until 6 June. I tried to go onto the VNF website but it didn't respond. there is nothing in the DBA forum. Does anyone know if this is the case? Cheers.
