NEW SEA ROUTE ANTICIPATED:
Midwest Awaits St. Lawrence Seaway Opening

ELflNEi

EDITOR'S NOTE: Work started
this spring on the St. Lawrence Sea-
way, which promises to bring, big
ocean-going freighters to the door-
step of the industrial Midwest. The
following story, based on a survey
of Associated Press bureaus in the
Great Lakes region, tells how lake-
side cities are rolling up their sleeves
in preparation for their new com-
mercial future.
By DAVID L. BOWEN
Associated Press Newsfeatures Writer
The inland heart of industrial
America, strung out along the
shores of the Great Lakes, is rap-
idly making plans for realization
of a dream a half-century old -
the opening of a deep water route
to the sea.
After decades of discussion and
argument, ground finally has been
broken on removing the bottleneck
barring ocean-going ships from the
harbors of Detroit, Chicago and a
dozen other inland manufacturing
centers. The bottleneck is a 46-mile
stretch of the St. Lawrence called
the International Rapids section
where present facilities permit
passage of ships with no more
than 14-foot draft.
When the Joint Canadian-Unit-
ed States program for increasing
water depth there to 27 feet is
completed in another four or five
years - along with improvements
above and below that point - a
new commercial era will dawn for
the Great Lakes.
Midwest Prepares
The Midwest is rising to the
challenge. The accompanying map
shows lakeside cities where multi-
million dollar projects for improv-
ing or completely rebuilding dock
facilities are reported under way

GIRDING FOR SEAWAY TRAFFIC-Shown on the map are
dock facilities are reported under way or in the planning stage.
Great Lakes Improveients before the seaway is five years old.

some of the cities where projects for improving or completely rebuilding
One estimate puts at 500 million dollars the amount to be spent on

or in the planning stage. Most of
the cities have yet to make firm
decisions, but before the seaway
is five years old one United States
Army Engineer estimates at least
500 million dollars may be invest-
ed by federal, state, city, and pri-
vate agencies.
The biggest expansion definitely
scheduled is at Chicago. Maxim M.
Cohen, general manager of the

Modern Dance Club presents
A DANCE CONCERT

Chicago Regional Port District,
says 2 million dollars in revenue
bonds for the first stage of devel-
opment of Lake Calumet will soon
be issued.
"We plan to construct 8,000 lin-
ear feet of rock, four transit sheds
of 60,000 square feet each, two
grain elevators, two railroad class-
ification yards, and a 100-acre
site for liquid tanks," Cohen says.
This initial project is scheduled
for completion in a year and a
half.
Other plans call for expansion
until Lake Calumet has 14 miles
of docks, with facilities for hand-
ling barges from the Mississippi
along with ocean freighters from
the world over.
Cohen predicts that in 1959, the
first full Great Lakes shipping
season after the seaway is open-
ed, between 400 and 500 seagoing
vessels will call at Chicago an-
nually. Only a few more than 100
shallow draft freighters put into
Chicago last year.

A short distance up Lake Michi-
gan at Milwaukee, port officials
are at work to make what they call
the "best equipped port on the
Great Lakes" even better. The
brewery town, also the home of
such manufacturing giants as Al-
lis-Chalmers, will have finished
by 1957 a new two-million-dollar
general cargo pier, and plans to
spend another two million dollars
to equip it. An additional $700,-
000 will be spent on miscellaneous
projects, including roadways in
and around the harbor, expansion
of track facilities and harbor dred-
ging.
Firm Conducts Study
At Buffalo, N. Y., on Lake Erie,
an engineering firm is conducting
a $50,000 study of the port's po-

tential. A preliminary report pro-
vided the basis for recommenda-
tion of a 5% million dollar im-
provement program.
The city of Detroit has no pre-
sent plans for port improvements.
Officials say present facilities are
sufficient to handle at least the
first year's increase in shipping.
However, that capability appar-
ently is not going to last long. Port
officials estimate that within five
years after the seaway is finish-
ed, overseas shipments from'De-
troit will increase 2,200 per cent
to one million tons. Chrysler Corp.
reports it now ships 6 per cent
of its exports by way of the Great
Lakes, but would ship 80 per cent
of overseas cargo from Detroit if
facilities became available.
