Tug Boat Underpass

Recommended Posts

That has been on the internet as not only a video, but also a website of pictures, with a link to a crewman's story.  

If I remember correctly, they said that with the river in that stage, it was hard to negotiate the bend with full barges, if they went under the high span.  So, they would drop the barges under a low span, then rush over, and send the tug under the high span, and go to pick up the barges on the other side.  I don't remember exactly what happened, but they were unable to back away from the bridge, to go through the high span.
