Burns Harbor is here frequently

The Burns Harbor comes to the Twin Ports more than most boats. It made 36 trips here last year but only went under the Lift Bridge twice, arriving once and departing once. It almost exclusively enters by way of the Superior entry and quickly ties up at the Burlington Northern dock to load taconite. It is one of 13 thousand foot boats currently working the Great Lakes.
