The latest update on ETAs for the EDGAR B. SPEER and PRESQUE ISLE has the PRESQUE ISLE arriving sometime on Thursday and the SPEER on Saturday. Ice in the St. Clair River has delayed traffic and is expected to delay the PRESQUE ISLE on its downbound voyage. The PRESQUE ISLE, which under normal circumstances would pass through the river sometime tonight, will now not be allowed to pass down through the rivers until sometime Tuesday, which will put the vessel in Conneaut on Wednesday sometime.
