Well . . . I was on a schedule to get to Dubuque, so the title provides alliteration if not accuracy.

Our timing was such that we could watch a tow make its way upbound at Lock & Dam 11, aka Eagle Point.

M/V Aaron F. Barrett was pushing twelve cement barges to St. Paul.

 

It was soon apparent to me that this would be a double-locking.

My estimate of barge length was about 200′.

 

There area just up from the lock was off limits, so I had no opportunity to see the mechanism that moves the non-propelled barges forward along the approach wall.   Anyone help with details here?
