Traffic on the Great Lakes Recently

Shipping activity has started again on the Great Lakes. Cleveland saw the ALGOCANADA arrive with diesel on March 2, being towed up the river by Great Lakes Towing's tugs IOWA and RHODE ISLAND. Meanwhile, the tug/barge DOROTHY ANN/PATHFINDER has been shuttling iron ore up the Cuyahoga River to Mittal Steel.

All photos were taken on March 2.
