One sad note, the fencing continues so that the entire area of approach below both locks 2 and 3 is now totally off limits and behind high and ugly chain link fence. I was still able to slip into the stairwell at three but expect they will soon have that prevented. The ironic thing about it is that I suspect they survey our photos to plug the gaps. This seemed evident at the north end of lock 7 where fencing was already in place but the fence height was raised again to prevent photo opportunity. I was thinking I will carry one of those household ladders in my trunk so I can rise above fence level where appropriate. It's irritating to think my tax dollars are funding all this. These areas have been open to the public for as long as I can remember and without incident as far as I can recall. I think it's called paranoia.
