ArcelorMittal Indiana Harbor, the largest integrated steel mill in North America, is a behemoth jutting out into Lake Michigan that takes 20 minutes to drive across – longer than it does to cross some entire towns in Northwest Indiana.

It's so big because it is, in fact, two steel mills now consolidated under the same management — the sprawling steelmaking complex along the Indiana Harbor and Ship Canal spans the former LTV plant to the west and the former Inland Steel mill to the east.
