Rest in Peace,
shrinking city shrinking port?

Here's a wild idea... let someone else take that cargo. If we were to have Great Lakes only shipping, how much activity will that be - that is my question.
While acres for our port sit idle covered with piles of ore and gravel, I do wonder if the port needs all this land on the lakefront. If they move, and if the seaway closes to ocean lake connections, what is the expansion option for using the port as economic development -- as a maritime shipping entity?
Currently the port has a small percentage of ocean vessels visiting, but container shipping might be a much larger operation. I imagined it on a Sunday morning a while back: efficient buildings/port musings
PS I hope Zebra Mussel will respond. I mean, with a name like Zebra Mussel, how could you not respond to this issue. You are zebra mussel... I'm dying to know how you chose that handle.
