SSM Swing Dam – In Sault Ste. Marie, $790,000 in federal funding towards the restoration of the swing dam was announced by MP Terry Sheehan at a ribbon cutting ceremony at Sault Ste. Marie Canal National Historic Site on Saturday.

The money will go towards upgrading the protective paint finishing, repairing the decking and handrails, as well as towards maintaining the base.

The Sault Ste. Marie Canal National Historic Site is undergoing a five-year, $13 million project, part of which was parking lot reconstruction and the removal of a berm that had obstructed the view of the locks. In addition, the  121 year-old Powerhouse and ‘old store house’ buildings are being restored.
