Michigan shipping season to see slow start

The Soo Locks

DETROIT (WKZO) -- The Soo Locks will open for 2014 Tuesday, marking the start of the Great Lakes shipping season. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers tells the “Detroit News” that getting the locks open will be a little difficult this year due to the amount of ice, but they are confident the passage between Lake Superior and Lake Huron will open on time. Even so, shipping is expected to be slow due to the harsh winter weather and the massive amount of ice coverage on the Great Lakes.
