Annual Ballard Lock Closure

Valued Coastal Transportation Customers,

The Ballard Locks will be closing for scheduled maintenance from Saturday, October 12th through Saturday, November 30th.  During this time, we will be operating out of the SeaTac Marine terminal located at 6701 Fox Ave. South, Seattle, 98108.    

During this closure, we be stopping southbound at Bellingham Cold Storage and City Ice/Pier 91 prior to SeaTac Marine. We encourage all our customers to reach out and establish accounts or inquire about offloading direct to either facility, as trucking will be required out of SeaTac Marine.

Please see our 2019 Fall Sailing Schedule showing our current scheduled sailing dates through December 2019. 

Northbound customers – first NB sailing of Lock closure will be on Friday, October 25th.  We will begin accepting dry and miscellaneous northbound freight at SeaTac Marine Terminal on Tuesday, October 15th.  We will receive Freeze, Chill and Hazmat freight for this sailing on Wednesday and Thursday, October 23rd and 24th.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Best Regards,

Coastal Transportation Team
