Dialogue Hosted by Lake Superior State University
The fifth of six stops in the URC Infrastructure Innovation Tour, the Sault Ste Marie roundtable convenes a discussion with legislators, business leaders and URC experts on emerging challenges with maritime shipping, updates planned for the Soo Locks–the largest waterway traffic system on earth–and the research underway to meet these challenges.
Launched after publishing Foundation for the Future: URC Contributions to Infrastructure Improvement, this tour is built to continue conversations about infrastructure needs, promote innovation and foster future collaboration.
