Soo Lock Construction of Poe-Sized Lock Reaches Contract Phase
The Army Corps of Engineers is seeking construction bids for the beginning stages of a new lock in Sault Ste. Marie.
A study from the Department of Homeland Security deemed a new lock necessary back in 2015.
The study showed if there were to be a 6-month interruption in the Poe Lock’s operation, it would be an economic disaster for the entire country.
These bids would be for a new upstream approach wall for the locks complex.
The move is being applauded by Michigan Congressman Jack Bergman.
Bergman has pushed for infrastructure upgrades.
