Saginaw River Passages - December 19th
The USGC Cutter Bristol Bay escorted the tug Samuel de Champlain, and her cement barge, Innovation, into the Saginaw River on Thursday. Bristol Bay broke the ice in the shipping channel then proceeded to open up the Lafarge Cement dock in Essexville and the Essexville turning basin before heading back outbound for the lake Thursday afternoon. The Samuel de Champlain and Innovation were at Lafarge unloading through the day and were expected to be outbound early Friday morning.
