MASSENA The traditional Memorial Day weekend opening of the Eisenhower Lock visitors center will not occur this weekend, the St. Lawrence Seaway Development Corp. announced Thursday.
Continuing repairs of damage caused by winter weather are causing the delay, according to a Seaway news release.
During the repair period, visitors should proceed to the Eisenhower Lock North Side Observation area, which is open to the public and will remain open throughout the year, the statement read.
The agency is replacing the roof of the 50-year-old main building and repairing the ground floor, which sustained water damage.
No timetable for reopening the visitors center was announced, but the release said work is expected to take a few weeks.
