This is the first time I have been this close to a towboat/barges that were waiting on the east side of the bank at Riverwalk Casino yesterday evening. All towboats are on standby for clearance to resume their trips upriver. The MS River remains closed to southbound traffic. The river is open to northbound traffic, but only tows carrying dry cargo are allowed to transit through Vicksburg.

"If you come look at the river and the tows that are holding up north of the bridge now, it looks like New York Harbor." Austin Golding/Golding Barge
