The John T. Myers Locks and Dam is a United States Army Corps of Engineers facility on the Ohio River in Posey County, Indiana, and Union County, Kentucky. Formerly known as the Uniontown Locks and Dam, it was renamed by an act of Congress in 1996 (PL 104-303) as a tribute to recently retired Congressman John T. Myers.[1]
