Abstract : This report summarizes the results of a Preliminary Feasibility Study of the navigation improvements for the St. Lawrence Seaway. The study developed traffic forecasts and commodity movement for the entire Great Lakes/St. Lawrence Seaway to determine lock capacity at the Eisenhower and Suell Locks, other St. Lawrence River Locks and the Welland Canal. Based on capacity dates structural and nonstructural navigation improvements were evaluated. Costs, benefits and impacts of different capacity improvements were derived. (Author)
