The Mud Lake Junction Buoy is no longer a feature of the St. Marys River system. We will miss the clang, clang of the bell which was a distinguished feature of this buoy. We have gotten used to hearing the boats, both up bound, and down bound, report to Soo Traffic, when they arrived at this  call-in point. Starting last October Soo Traffic warned boats of construction in the area of this buoy. At the time I said that it seemed likely, that a crib would be built. A river ride Saturday proved that this did, in fact happen. Now Soo Traffic, and the ship captains refer to this point, only as the Mud Lake Junction. Attached are five pictures of the old and the new - Herm Klein
