Commercial shipping traffic, for November, started out slow on the Saginaw River, but rebounded nicely towards the end of the month. There were a total of 14 commercial vessel deliveries for the month of November. This is twice a many as compared to 2016, when there were only 7, and right on par with the five year average, which is also 14. For the year to date, there have been 126 commercial vessel passages on the Saginaw River. This is 23 more than last year, at this time, and 7 more than the five year average. This total is also more than the total number of passages for the entire 2016 season, when there were only 113.
