News reporter Bao Vang, WBAY-TV, Channel 2, Green Bay, and her cameraman did a short interview this morning with Hoyt at the Potato Dock about dredging. The Roen crew had just completed offloading the barge and were in the process of pushing the crane and material barges into position to begin again. The news story should air on the local-2 news this evening.
Two crews are now working on the barges. Tom Jordan digs the tougher material with the excavator during the day, which is offloaded before the shift ends, then second shift digs softer material with the crane, and that barge load is trucked first thing in the morning. Progress is being made, but there are still 3 to 4 days of this routine, estimated, to complete the work. Temperatures have been in the teens by night, low to mid 20s by day, with a forecast for warming toward the weekend. That's good news.
Travelers interested in catching an earlier trip need to contact the Ferry Line office to find out if there will be an extra ferry for the following day, and time of departure.
