Herbert C. Jackson brings ice

The Herbert C. Jackson is expected under the Lift Bridge around 6 am. It is bringing a cargo of limestone to the Northland Stone dock and will then move up the St. Louis River to discharge a cargo of sand at the Hallett 8 dock in Superior. Once that is complete, it will move next door to the Midwest Energy Resources coal dock to load about 18,500 tons of coal for the Shiras Steam Plant, operated by the Marquette Board of Light and Power in Marquette, Michigan. Above, the Jackson pushes the ice away as it comes through the Duluth ship canal on December 12, 2005.
