Lingering ice delays shipping season on Mississippi River

Ice Delays shipping on Mississippi River

LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) - Lingering ice could keep some of the Mississippi River's shipping ports closed longer than expected.

On parts of Lake Pepin, there is more than 2 feet of ice making it difficult for barges to pick up or drop off goods.  

Some construction companies have had to make other plans for shipping materials to the area.

The thickness of ice in some spots is nearly double the yearly average.
