Locks and dams are starting to reopen along the Mississippi River following some recent flooding events.
Mike Steenhoek, Executive Director of the Soy Transportation Coalition, tells Brownfield several sites south of Minneapolis/St. Paul and along the Iowa/Illinois border have resumed operations.
“There’s still a few that are remaining to be open,” he said. “That will likely happen in the next couple of days.”
He says the high levels have had a limited impact on grain shipments.
