Chittenden Lock remains closed

The large lock at the Chittenden Locks in Ballard remains closed to vessel traffic due to a lightning strike Monday Oct. 11, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which operates the locks.

Originally expected to be returned to service by Tuesday Oct. 12, the large lock is now not expected to return to service until the end of the week, at the earliest.

The maintenance crew is working to restore service. As more information on the large lock status becomes available, updates will be posted on the Corps of Engineers information line at 1-866-596-2635
