The navigational lock at the Hugh L. Keenleyside Dam will be closed on Tuesday, Aug. 25 starting at noon.
BC Hydro says this closure is necessary to undertake repairs to the navigational lock gate.
The navigational lock is expected to reopen the following morning at 8 a.m.
Regular hours of operation for the Navigational Lock are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the weekends.
“This service is available at no charge for all properly equipped watercraft,” advises Mary Anne Coules, BC Hydro spokesperson. “Please note that the last lock cycle begins at 3:30 p.m.”
Questions or concerns can be directed to Coules at 250-365-4565.
