PRELIMINARY INVESTIGATION. EXTENDING THE SHIPPING SEASON ON THE ST. LAWRENCE SEAWAY

The paper is a preliminary investigation into the problems of extending the shipping season on the St. Lawrence Seaway and the impact such an extension would have upon the Great Lakes region. It begins with a summary of the technical problems associated with extending the shipping season, i.e., controlling the ice in the Seaway. Data are then presented for alternative improvement programs, utilizing cost projections of the U. S. Coast Guard. Finally, some questions are introduced that must be considered before an informed decision can be made regarding the feasibility of extending the Seaway navigation season.
