The Board of Army Officers appoint
ed to Investigate the routes for tho pro
posed canal from Lake Erie to the Ohio
River, has reported, and considers the
following routes available for continu
ous canals making the required connec
tion: First, Eastern route Cleveland to
Second, Central route Sandusky Bay
Third, Western route Toledo to Cin
cinnati. On all these routes the water supply
is such that with necessary improve
ments it is practicable to construct a
canal of the kind required that can be
operated at Us full capacity for 275
days each year.
The estimated cost of each waterway
of tho prescribed dimensions is: East
ern route, ei2.a09.S72; Central route,
318,00T,105. To tho latter may us add
ed, if necessary, cost of feeder from
Lewiston reservoir to the Seiota valley,
521,000, making tho whole sum for the
Central route, S18.118.1C5; Western
route, 523,011,374. The Board concludes
that while it would bo feasible to con
struct a canal of tho dimensions. speci
fied it would, by reason of inadequate
depth in tho canal and the Ohio, bo
restricted in its benefits.
