Hopper Barge Sinks on Upper Mississippi River
USAgNet - 01/24/2020
A 20-barge tow struck a stationary vessel last week near the Upper Mississippi River mile marker 51.9 near Cape Girardeau, MO, causing a single hopper barge carrying cement to sink in 60-foot waters.
The Coast Guard notified mariners in the area to exercise caution until the barge was located.
With 42 feet of water over the barge, it will not present significant challenges to navigation but is being monitored by sonar.
