Alpena enters Twin Ports harbor

The Alpena made its 10th appearance of the season on Monday morning (above), bringing another load of cement to the Twin Ports. It may leave sometime this afternoon. The American Victory was expected to arrive last night to load taconite for Mittal Steel in Indiana Harbor. When it is finished discharging the taconite in Indiana Harbor, it will come back up to Lake Superior to load taconite in Silver Bay to take back to Ashtabula. Like the last 4 days, today will be a very active day for Twin Ports shipping. Photo taken on September 3, 2007.
