Once the pair had finished, they traveled upriver to turn at the Airport Turning Basin, then headed back through Bay City and out to the lake. The tug Spartan, with tank barge Spartan II called on the Dow Chemical Oxy Dock in Bay City on Thursday. The pair unloaded overnight and departed for the lake Friday morning.
