Some Barges Could Be Stuck For Two Weeks
The Army Corps now says that almost 200 scheduled barges have not been able
to go south between Red Wing and Winona. Gordon Holman, Lockmaster at Alma says this has been developing for a few months now.
He says the Corps conducts dredging every year but he's never seen the sediment this bad. Winona could open early next week. Rest of the area? Maybe 2 weeks.
