Notice to Navigators: Illinois River

IRCA: Marseilles Canal Blockage


I just received word that a vessel pushing a flat deck barge is spudded down and blocking the channel in the Marseilles Canal due to a malfunction on one of its spuds.  Plans are being made for a crane barge to assist with raising the spud and getting the vessel back underway.


I will send updates as I receive them.
