THE ST. LAWRENCE SEAWAY - CLOSING OF THE 2000 NAVIGATION SEASON

The closing of the Welland Canal is scheduled to take place at 0800 hours on 24 December 2000. Transit beyond the closing date and time may be allowed depending on demand and operating conditions.

A number of structural restoration projects in the Welland Canal during the 2000/2001 non-navigation season will be carried out.  Because of the work-volume and in order not to delay the opening of the 2001 season, it is necessary that these projects start as early as possible.
Officials at the St. Lawrence Seaway in Canada and the United States have announced that the planned opening of the Seaway will be as early as 23 March 2001, which will mark the earliest opening since the Seaway opened in 1959.
