From the Corps of Engineers Ballard Locks facebook page:
UPDATE NOV 6: The Large Lock will close for annual maintenance Nov. 13-30. (5 days later than previously released) We originally planned to close November 8th, but are delaying some gate maintenance until next year. (So please anticipate a 3 week closure in 2015) Please check back for updates or follow us on facebook www.facebook.com/chittendenlocks or twitter http://twitter.com/Chittenden Locks.
The small lock will still be open for boat traffic and it is also an opportunity to see what the lock looks like under the water.
