BBC India bridge to go under the Bridge

The BBC India, expected here this morning, last came under the Lift Bridge 6 years ago yesterday. It was called the Maria Green then and was here to load grain. The picture shows a view of the bridge of the ship on that trip. It was sold in 2004 and received its current name. It is bringing cargo this time, wind turbine blades for a wind turbine farm in Waltham, Minnesota. The ship is also carrying 4 pieces for a crane that will be assembled and then used to assemble the wind turbine. Another ship will be here later this year with 69 more pieces of the crane.
