Lake freighters are stacking up near the Twin Ports of Duluth and Superior, Wisconsin waiting for their turn to drop off shipments or take on loads before the Soo Locks close in less than two weeks. The days of open water are numbered.

Ore boats have turned the Duluth harbor into somewhat of a parking lot. Jim Sharrow, director of port planning and resiliency of the Duluth Seaway Port Authority, told WDIO-TV frigid temperatures are slowing the process down. It takes longer to load and the docks run into more problems when it's so cold.
