What about portaging around the locks utilizing the several rail corridors that currently exist along the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal. Have they thought of fitting the barges with a set up allowing for roll-on-roll off railcars to facilitate such a portage?

And, have they thought of the external costs of spreading invasive species and other contaminants between watersheds and how they propose to mitigate them if this canal remains open?
