Wow! Where is that? Draft restriction? Wonder what that cost versus a drawbridge?

Lots of aqueducts like that in UK and EU. The Chesapeake tunnel on the VA/NC state line is a virtual larger and deeper version. Pretty neat, all of them.

Yeah - pretty bad-ass to pass through one of them under sail too. Might have to add that to the bucket list.

That's a wide beam narrow boat used mostly on the UK and EU canal systems.

And the tunnel to Canada under the Detroit River from Detroit.
The crooked mayor tried to sell the side that belongs to the US. He was stopped because Detroit does not own it.d
Because of these and his other shady deals and accepting bribes, he ended up in prison a long with a few other Michigan mayors and elected officials. LOL

Drifting but I am waxing nostalgic. Spent the first 27 years of my life in Michigan the majority in Detroit. It was a beautiful city in the 50's and 60's. 5th largest in the US. I returned after a 43 year absence in 2019. It looked like a vision of the future at the end of civilization. I believe the 67' riots were Detroit's death knell. I and about 2 million Detroiters have gone. Left the city in an impoverished black ghetto ripe for the criminal element - Kilpatrick. Selling the Windsor tunnel - I am not surprised.
