Shipping - Portage Lake Canal

Seasons, Winter, Ships, Transportation, Bridges Near zero temperatures combined with gusty winds of 40 miles an hour and lashing waters froze the Portage Lake drawbridge Monday night. As a result, steamers were unable to pursue their normal protected route to the Sault and Duluth Superior Harbor by the secure Keweenaw Waterway. The photo shows the Nicholson Transit Co. Steamer James Watt plowing through the released drawbridge. The bridge was thawed just an hour prior. The photo was taken from the high lift bridge just before the ship coursed through the open draw and under the lift span. [Image of the ore boat making its way through the open bridge. Large chunks of ice float in the water.]
