Lock Closure- Hiram M. Chittenden Locks

There will be an 8 hour lock closure on Wednesday, July 13th 2011, and a possible 2 hour lock closure on Thursday, July 14th, 2011.

Both the large lock and small lock will be closed from 7:30 AM to 1:00 PM, for an inspection of the Adult Salmon Exclusion Structure. There will be divers in the water during this time period, preventing lock operations. The only exception will be for emergency vessels on an emergency call.

After 1:00 PM on July 13th, only the large lock will be closed to do a repair near the middle gates.  If the repair  is not completed by 4:00 PM, the large lock will re-open,  and repairs will be finished early on the morning of July 14th.

The Small Lock will be operating as normal by 1:00 PM, on the 13th and throughout the 14th.

Any questions should be referred to David Carpenter, Navigation Supervisor 206-789-2622 ext.202/ Cell 206-399-0159, or the Lockmaster on duty, 206-783-7000.
