GLIN Site of the Month for May
Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation
<http://www.dot.gov/slsdc/>

Since 1959 the St. Lawrence Seaway System has been a vital
transportation link for moving goods between the heartland of North
America and international markets. The St. Lawrence Seaway is a model of
cooperation between the United States and Canada and is jointly managed
by the U.S. Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation (SLSDC) and
the Canadian St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation. The SLSDC's web
site contains extensive Seaway information, a clickable map that links
to Great Lakes port profiles and Great Lakes/Seaway-related sites. This
year marks the Great Lakes Seaway System's 40th anniversary, which will
be observed throughout 1999.
