Buffalo Traffic - Brian Wroblewski

The tug Jacklyn moored with her spud barge across the entrance to the Union Ship Canal above the Father Baker Bridge. They were acting as a blockade to keep pleasure craft away from the environmental work being done inside the waterway.

Here we can see the fabric being laid down the Union Ship Canal to cover over the contaminated silt on the bottom of the channel. The entire waterway is being filled with fresh silt to hold down the fabric and seal off and leakage of sediment.

The tug Rebecca Lynn pushing her barge past the foot of Ontario St. in the Tonawanda Channel of the Niagara River.

The Rebecca Lynn with her bow fixed tightly inside the notch of the A-397 and pushing for the Black Rock Lock in Buffalo.

Lynn/A-397 passing through the draw on their way out to the lake in the Black Rock Canal.
