In the 1970s an extensive economic impacts study of the Port of Monroe was conducted that resulted in outlandish proposals such as an offshore island industrial complex that would be able to accommodate the 1000-foot vessels on the Great Lakes, which at the time were the newest thing on the lakes. This offshore island scheme would involve the 1000-foot vessels calling on this industrial park and having barges shuttle commodities back to shore.
