Lower Mississippi River Update


IRPT spoke with Lt. Paz, USCG Lower Mississippi River Sector, this morning. River is reopening today. Broadcast to Mariners is being prepared at this moment.

Cassandra Caldwell, Arkansas Waterways Commission Director, stated that it was relayed on a LOMARC call yesterday afternoon that it was believed the congestion would be cleared within 36 to 48 hours.

It is not known at this time what the true impact will be.

We will be monitoring the situation and IRPT will keep you updated as more information becomes available via the IRPT Mobile App.
