Boat Elevator

Lock 38 is one of the few restored, working locks
along the historic Ohio & Erie Canal. Locks are like
elevators - they raise and lower boats between levels.
State engineers designed 44 locks to deal with a 395 foot
rise in elevation from Cleveland to Akron.

Heavy wooden gates enclose the boat-sized stone
chamber. Lock operators added water to the chamber to
raise a boat headed upstream. They drained out water
to lower a boat headed downstream.
