Wisconsin’s waterways are a huge part of our state’s history. No one knows this better than the Fox River Navigational System Authority (FRNSA). The FRNSA is an independent state authority that manages the restoration and maintenance of the 17 locks on the Fox River. We are very excited to announce the launch of their brand new website!

The homepage of the FRNSA website begins with an image of one of the historic Fox River locks. Visitors can navigate to each page via the easy to use navigation menu, which includes a call-to-action to donate or volunteer, or click on a button to view the lock schedule. Scrolling down brings up a short about section, along with latest news and a newsletter signup area. Below these elements is an interactive map displaying each lock location along the Fox River. Along the side of the map visitors can click a lock location and be taken to a page with full details, including the lock’s history, dimensions, photos, hours of operation and more.

“Having the only fully restored, hand-operated lock system in the United States is something we can all be proud of as Wisconsinites,” said our Stellar Web Developer. “We wanted to provide a website that highlighted the efforts of the FRNSA and what they’ve done to keep this part of Wisconsin’s heritage intact.”

The goal of the site is to inform visitors about the Fox River lock system, and to provide a resource for board members, boaters and history buffs alike. Visitors can navigate to the various about pages to learn more about the FRNSA, as well as view board minutes for every board meeting, spanning all the way back to 2010. There is also a board portal for board members to share information. The schedules and operations pages provide information on lock hours and procedures, along with everything boaters should know about using the lock system. The site utilizes WordPress blog integration, which provides an easy means of adding new content and blog posts, and the site is responsive for mobile users. For those that want to get in contact with the FRNSA, a fillable contact form is available on the contact page, along with phone numbers for each lock location.
