Superior city leaders are celebrating the beginning of the end for a major project to bring a shipyard into the 21st century.

As we first reported Monday, Fraser Shipyards is getting a Wisconsin Harbor Assistance Grant of nearly $3 million to reconstruct dock walls. 

It's the third government grant to modernize the only shipyard on Lake Superior.

"State and federal grants will result in a stronger, more efficient, more effective shipyard," Sen. Bob Jauch said at Friday's press conference. "More modern, with more space, that results in more employees working throughout the year."

Fraser Shipyards more than doubled its wintertime employment to 365 people this past season.
