Timeline For Salvaging Barges That Sank In Ohio River Unknown

(Louisville, KY) - The U.S. Coast Guard is changing its plans from recovery to salvage for the barges underwater, capsized or stuck on the McAlpine Dam.  

It's not known how long it will be before the barges are removed from the river.

The heavy equipment needed to remove the barges from the river is expected to arrive this week.  

However, the river's level will play a big part in determining when the work will begin.
