M/V Burns Harbor
The last vessel to traverse the Poe Lock for the 2019-2020 shipping season was the 1,000-foot freighter Burns Harbor. The ship was up-bound from Burns Harbor, Indiana headed for Superior, Wisconsin for winter lay-up. The ship completed locking through January 15 at 6:44 a.m. This last vessel through the locks marks the end of a busy season and the beginning of yearly maintenance.
