He said the waterway is closed to commercial traffic from the Soo Locks to Six Mile Point. The plan was approved, and efforts to free the Calumet got underway.

The owner of the ship, Grand River Navigation, is finalizing a salvage plan and will present it to the Coast Guard for approval later today. There are 12 vessels anchored or moored waiting to transit downbound on the river and 5 vessels waiting to transit upbound on the river.

Once the vessel is refloated, it will be towed to a designated anchorage in Lake Nickolet for exterior and interior hull examinations.

MARIE, MI- A freighter has run aground in the St. Marys River in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, while en route from ESSAR Steel in Sault Ste.


The Coast Guard conducted two aerial flights Thursday, one with an MH-60 helicopter from Air Station Traverse City, and one later in the day by a Coast Guard Auxiliary Air Patrol.

The Coast Guard is on scene and no injuries have been reported.

The cause is under investigation.

All passengers on a US cargo ship traveling to Brevort are safe after the vessel ran aground.
