Welland Canal season to end Dec. 31

The Welland Canal will close for the season on Dec. 31, the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corp. said.

The canal's navigation season began March 20, tying a record set in 2007 for the earliest opening date.

Through October, the amount of cargo shipped on the St. Lawrence Seaway, which includes the Welland Canal, was up 34 percent from the same period in 2016. The increase was fueled mainly by higher shipments of iron ore.
