Boats And Trains – Ballard Locks / Ballard Draw Bridge – Seattle, Washington, USA

The Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, built in 1911 and often nicknamed the Ballard Locks, provides a link for boats between the salt water of Puget Sound and the fresh water of the Ship Canal, which connects eastward to Lake Union and Lake Washington.

The Ballard Bridge, located at the west end of the Lake Washington Ship Canal at Salmon Bay, is the fourth and last of the Lake Washington Ship Canal Bridges to be passed before entering Puget Sound from Lake Washington. Built in 1917 with a length of 2,854 feet, the Ballard Bridge links the Magnolia and Queen Anne neighborhoods with Ballard.

Trains seen is this video are BNSF Railway, Sounder, and Amtrak.

In case you missed it, watch the guy in the boat at 15:02 have his hat blow of his head in the wind….LOL!

Thanks For Watching and Enjoy!

    sythemaster1: it is primarily because of the amount of foot traffic and looky-lews there. Hard keep keep the tourists out of harms way, and out of the way of operations, as they are constantly walking across the gates (which is fine when they are closed – not so when in operation.)
