Different law enforcement agencies have been escorting the dredge tugs up & down the river due to increased summer time public activity & today the Erie County Sheriff's Dept. was leading the way.

After the officers clear the traffic, the tugs don't waste any time coming through the draw at the Michigan St. Bridge. A lookout stationed on the barge's bow calls out distances for the tug captain.

 The tug Paul L Luedtke, with her barge "on the push", starts the turn for the Ohio St. Bridge. Gas powered pumps were being used to de-water the scow & can be seen discharging over the side.

As Ohio St. is raised, the tug powers up for the turn under the bridge. These boats run hard & fast all day long & must have well maintained engines to be able to zip around the harbor as much as they do.
