Sending a ferry through the Locks

Ferry fans lined Seattle’s Lake Washington Ship Canal Monday morning, July 29, 2019 to witness an unusual sight (see video) as one of our iconic ferries sailed through! 

Tugboats guided the 144-car Super-class Elwha from the Eagle Harbor Maintenance Facility on Bainbridge Island to the Lake Union Drydock Company where it will undergo repairs on its deck steel.

During its journey, the vessel passed through the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, then under the Ballard, Fremont and Aurora bridges, before entering Lake Union.
