The St. Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation began removing buoys from the St. Lawrence River on Dec. 16 and will finish Saturday.
Roughly 103 buoys will be removed and replaced with 64 winter markers. Pictured above is a Seaway tug boat pulling a barge carrying buoys to the Robert C. McEwen Customs House in Ogdensburg. Some buoys are stored in the city for the winter. (Ewart photo)
