Soo Locks To Open Early
Sun, 21 Mar 2021 06:03:19 EDT


For the first time in recent history, the Soo Locks will open early.

The Army Corps of Engineers says it will open Wednesday (March 24th) at noon, 12 hours earlier than normal.

Officials say the locks are opening a little earlier because of a request from the steel industry to help replenish the supply of iron ore used by steel mills in the lower Great Lakes.
