Saginaw River Passages - June 2nd
The Olive L. Moore - Lewis J. Kuber were outbound from the Saginaw River on Friday, after the pair unloaded at the Lafarge stone dock in Saginaw. They were followed by the Stephen B. Roman, who had unloaded at the Essroc dock in Essexville. Calumet was inbound late Friday night, traveling upriver to unload at the GM dock in Saginaw. She was outbound on Saturday. For the month of May, there were 21 commercial vessel passages on the Saginaw River. This is a dramatic increase from the same month last year, when there were only eight passages. The year to date has also seen a big increase over last year. There have been 35 commercial passages in 2012 as compared to only 17 during the same period in 2011.
