St. Clair Tunnel is the name for two separate rail tunnels which
were built under the St. Clair River between Sarnia, Ontario and
Port Huron, Michigan. It was the first full-size subaqueous tunnel
built in North America. (By full-size it is meant that it allowed a
railroad to run through it.) The St. Clair Tunnel Company opened
the first tunnel in 1891. The company was a subsidiary of the Grand
Trunk Railway (GTR), which used the new route to connect with its
subsidiary Grand Trunk Western Railroad (GTWR). Before the tunnel's
construction, the GTR was forced to use time-consuming rail ferries
to transfer cargo.
