SCHUMER STATEMENT ON THE ST. LAWRENCE SEAWAY LOCK VISITORS’ CENTER GROUNDBREAKING

Washington, D.C. – After personally visiting the St. Lawrence Seaway Visitors’ Center in 2018 and successfully delivering over $6 million in federal funding through U.S. Department of Transportation to replace the once dilapidated Visitors’ Center. Senator Schumer today released the following statement on the groundbreaking of the new facility:

“I was proud to fight for and deliver $6 million to modernize the St. Lawrence Seaway Visitors’ Center,” said Senator Schumer. “Tens of thousands of tourists come to Massena every year to marvel as the ships come through the incredible Eisenhower Lock, but the Visitors’ Center hadn’t been upgraded in 60 years. St. Lawrence County will soon have a new, modern visitor’s center it has long deserved to boost tourism with state of the art amenities and welcome all visitors with ADA compliant facilities. I’m thrilled that the groundbreaking is finally taking place, and just as the Eisenhower Lock helps raise our ships this new Visitors’ Center will help uplift the entire North Country, letting new economic energy flow to our downtowns and scenic communities.”
