IS SOO LOCKS ENGINEERS DAY HAPPENING THIS YEAR?

It’s a day we have all been patiently waiting for! Engineers Day is making a triumphant return this summer. In partnership with the City of Sault Ste. Marie, the United States Coast Guard and the United States Army Corps of Engineers, we are ecstatic to help put on this special event.

This year, you’ll once again be able to cross over the MacArthur Lock and get as close as possible to freighters.
