CHIPPEWA COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is using a new tool to help visualize the New Lock at the Soo.
Lock operators and design members are using virtual reality to see what the new lock will look like from a new perspective.
Virtual reality allows crews to virtually walk through the project to help identify any issues before designs are finalized.
According to the Army Corps, the New Lock at the Soo team has been creating a 3D model of the New Lock in Revit before it is imported into the virtual reality software.
