McCarthy arrives Duluth under Aerial Lift Bridge

The American Integrity is expected here at first light today to load coal at the Midwest Energy coal dock in Superior. The Walter J. McCarthy, Jr. is expected in the early afternoon, also here to load coal. Each boat will take about 64,000 tons of coal to Detroit Edison with the American Integrity going to the power plant at St. Clair. The McCarthy will split its load between St. Clair and the Detroit Edison power plant in Monroe, Michigan. Because the McCarthy will have to wait for the American Integrity to finish, it may drop anchor outside the piers or come in to wait at the Port Authority. It is pictured coming under the Lift Bridge on May 11 this year. Photo taken on May 11, 2009
