Today, in a very unusual maneuver, a bulk carrier will stop at the Port of Astoria and unload six wind turbine blades onto a barge for transport to Longview.

It should make for an interesting sight for folks who can stop by the port docks for a peek. Look for the CL Lindy around 8 am at the Port.

The reason she’s stopping there is that some of her cargo is blocking visibility from the bridge and that has to be remedied for safety reasons. It will be a time consuming and delicate operation.
