Ballard Locks large chamber to close for repairs

Published by at 1:09 pm under Shilshole Neighbors

The Hiram M. Chittenden Locks large chamber will close to all vessel traffic 6:30 a.m. October 12, for the first of four scheduled extended closures to begin replacing the chamber’s filling culvert valves.

It will remain closed for up to 53 days, with a scheduled reopening December 3. That’s a month longer than the typical November annual maintenance closure two to three week time frame. The small chamber will remain open during this time and vessels up to 28-feet wide by 123-feet long are able to use it.
