What does the Snell Lock connect?
from Keisha in Fort Wayne, Indiana

The Bertrand H. Snell Lock, located northeast of Massena, New York, is part of the St. Lawrence Seaway and lifts (or lowers) ships 45 feet into the Wiley-Dondero Canal. The St. Lawrence Seaway was constructed in the 1950's to provide a continuous, navigable, and deep waterway, through a series of locks and dams, from the Atlantic ocean to the Great Lakes.
