Last Freighter of 2019 Season Passes Through Soo Locks

The Soo Locks will be closing for the winter, after the last freighter passed through the locks Wednesday morning.

The MV Burns Harbor was the very last vessel to pass through the Soo Locks for the 2019 season.

She passed through the Poe Lock at 6:44 am on her way to Superior, Wisconsin.

Crews will start the de-watering process Wednesday, making way for off-season maintenance projects.
