More Barges Moved At Marseilles Dam

Posted by wlpo on April 26, 2013

The process of removing stranded barges at the Marseilles Dam continues.

According to the Army Corps of Engineers, three barges were removed from the dam Thursday thanks to a huge crane called HERCULES.  Officials were able to open up two gates at the dam after getting the three barges out of the way.

Three barges still remain stuck at the dam.  Officials hope to remove the cargo from these barges this weekend.
