ASCE COPRI Seattle Chapter Monthly Dinner Meeting - Feb 28, 2018
Topic:
Ballard Locks: Keystone of Puget Sounds Maritime Economy

Description:
The Ballard Locks are the only marine link between Seattles inland lakes, Lake Washington and Lake Union, and Puget Sound. In fact, the Locks serve more individual vessels than any other locks in the nation. Shortly after the 100th anniversary of the Locks opening day, there is growing concern about making the infrastructure upgrades needed for the Locks to continue operating reliably and safely. This presentation will describe the critical role the Locks play in Puget Sounds maritime economy, in addition to describing the potential losses in the event of a closure, the required upgrades to prevent a closure, and where we are in the process of obtaining federal funding.  

Speakers:
Heather Haugland (McDowell Group) & Ryan McFarland (Port of Seattle)

Heather is a Senior Project Manager for McDowell Group, a research and consulting firm with 45 years of experience in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest.

Heather is a graduate of Harvard University and a current co-chair of the Seattle Chambers Alaska Business Forum.
