Saginaw River Report - April 2nd

While it is April 2nd and lake freighters are now out and moving cargo, there has yet to be a commercial cargo delivery to the Saginaw River.  On this date in 2012, the first cargo of the season arrived when the tug Samuel de Champlain and her cement barge, Innovation, called on the Lafarge Cement Terminal in Carrollton.  

The river isn't without activity however, as crews from Luedtke Engineering have been busy preparing equipment, that wintered in the old Defoe Shipbuilding slip, for the upcoming dredging season.  The tugs Kurt Luedtke and Karl Luedtke have both had AIS up and have been moving about.
