Lafarge North America on the Calumet River

It is nice to see that there is still some commerce on the Calumet River.

I wonder why the Norfolk Southern bridge is not yet going up. I wonder how the barge and tug ride storm waves on Lake Michigan. They don't get as bad as Lake Superior, but they can get rather significant during a bad storm.

Given the name on the barge, it was easy to determine where it was coming from. I notice that the plant is not served by rail even though there are tracks close by. Looks like NS/NW/NKP spurs.
