Secretary Slater Dedicates New Seaway Vessel Traffic Control Center

August 25, 1999

U.S. Secretary of Transportation Rodney E. Slater dedicated a new vessel traffic control center at the Saint Lawrence Seaway's Eisenhower Lock. This fully automated system, operated by the U.S. Department of Transportation's Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation (SLSDC), will improve vessel tracking capabilities on the seaway, making maritime travel safer and more efficient. "This new center will provide users with a seamless source of vessel traffic information covering all sections of the seaway," Secretary Slater said at the dedication ceremony. The new vessel traffic control center was named in honor of Erman Cocci, SLSDC's associate administrator.
