UPPER MISSISSIPPI RIVER - CHANNEL CONDITION/SAFETY ADVISORY - UPDATE
The following areas are in the extreme high water action phase IAW the Western Rivers WAP Annex:
Zone 28 (Mile 185.4 – Mile 109.9). A Safety Zone in St. Louis Harbor between Miles 184.0 and 179.0, continues. Towboat operators should exercise caution and minimize wake where possible and be experienced in high water operations. Southbound tows greater than 600 feet in length, excluding towboat, SHALL limit transit to daylight hours only. Towing vessels should have a minimum of 250 horsepower for each loaded barge. Mariners are advised to favor the center of the channel, use caution in passing or meeting situations and should proceed at their slowest safe operating speed based upon prevailing conditions in order to minimize wake damage to personal property. Down-streaming operations are not recommended unless the vessel is 75 feet or more in length and has a minimum of 1,800 horsepower. Vessels should avoid laying up on all levees in this zone and should assess bridge clearances in advance. Mariners are requested to review anchoring requirements and pre-identify
layup areas in the event of a river closure or barge breakaway. Mariners should remain vigilant to an increase in debris and maneuver appropriately, be aware of the buildup of debris in fleeting areas and take appropriate action to prevent any breakaways from occurring.

Mississippi River At Grafton, Illinois

Towboat Festival Offered Glimpse Of River Life........

 

On Saturday, the Annual Grafton Towboat Festival kicked off in Grafton, Illinois.  The festival featured The Twyla Luhr, which is a working towboat, often visible pushing barges up and down the Mississippi River.

 

The Twyla Luhr was tied up adjacent to Grafton's The Loading Dock Bar and Grill, and offered visitors a tour of the vessel by none other than the Twyla Luhr's crew.

 

The vessel was named for the Luhr brother's mother, who had passed away in 2010.  The Twyla Luhr had been in operation since 1980, however, due to the hard work of her crew, she looks like a brand new ship........

Mississippi River At Cape Girardeau, Missouri

Tourist Riverboats Have Returned ........

 

Last week, the Mississippi River receded enough to allow passengers from a pair of riverboats direct access to downtown Cape Girardeau.

 

The American Queen and the Queen of the Mississippi were able to tie up at the Themis Street floodgate last week after having to postpone several scheduled stops.

 

The high level of the Mississippi River had kept the riverboats from being able to stop in Cape Girardeau.  This summer, five dockings had been missed prior to the floodgates reopening on Tuesday........
