Update – LMR Closure Due to Sunken Barge – MM 152 to MM 156 AHP

The LMR remains closed from MM 152 to MM 156, AHP.
A coal barge sank when water entered cargo holds. However, the barge voids are thought to be intact remaining watertight which could be causing some buoyancy. Therefore, pending a survey, it is unknown the exact location nor the depth of the barge in the river at this time. A USACE survey boat will survey the area, but is unable to get underway at this time due to limited visibility.
