the locks at St. Anthony Falls

The system of locks is used to move river traffic through areas of low water levels.  The St. Anthony Falls locks are located on the north end of the Mississippi River at St. Anthony Falls in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.  These locks are no longer in use and river traffic now ends at St. Paul  giving St. Paul the distinction of being the northern most port city on the Mississippi River.
