Alpena Photos

Here are a few more photos I took of the Alpena on January 4, 2013


  1. Great pictures of her Todd in the ice. Have you heard any reason why she unloaded there instead of the lafarge cement dock in carrolton? I know from your post the Integrity also unloaded there this past summer in 2012. They only had one shipment to lafarge cement in Carrolton by the Innovation early in the season in 2012. It seems in the last few years the lafarge cement dock in carrolton only has been getting one or maybe two loads. I always thought essroc was a canadian company. Im wondering if its possible they somehow now have a contract with lafarge and we will now see the Alpena and the two barges unload there while still makeing the occacional run to the lafarge dock in Carrolton. If you hear anything please make a post about it. In my two trips to saginaw in 2012 the lafarge cement dock appeard to have very little activity. No trucks loading and only 2 cars infront of there office.

  2. Hi Dan. I have heard that the Lafarge dock in Carrollton is for sale. What that actually means, I am not sure, but it probably isn't good news. I really do not know anything about the Lafarge boats going to Essroc. If I find out anything, I will let you know. Thanks for your comments!

  3. Nice shot. Alpena is one of my favorites.
