Ballard Locks to close temporarily for two mornings this week

Posted by Meghan Walker on September 30th, 2013

The Ballard Locks will close Wednesday and Thursday mornings this week while  Navy Divers prepare the salmon exclusion structure for winter operations. Both locks will be closed from 7:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday Oct. 2, and only the large lock will be closed from 8 to 11:30 on Thursday Oct. 3.

Divers from Naval Base Kitsap closed 10, 10-foot-by-6-foot doors in June to keep salmon from entering the locks’ saltwater intake return in June, and they’ll be reopening the doors this week for normal winter operations. The divers will also be working to prepare the structure for a later de-watering in November.

Boaters can call the lockmaster on duty at 206-783-7000 to verify the locks are open following the scheduled closure.

    When I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify
    me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each
    time a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the same comment.
    Is there a means you can remove me from that service?

    When someone writes an paragraph he/she maintains the image of
    a user in his/her brain that how a user can be aware of it.
    Therefore that’s why this piece of writing is perfect. Thanks!

    When someone writes an article he/she keeps the idea of a user in his/her brain that how a user can know it.
    Thus that’s why this post is amazing. Thanks!
