Sunken Barge Raised from Narrangansett Bay
That barge which sank near the Newport Bridge in October was raised this week.

After several weeks of coordination with port and industry partners, salvage crews hoisted the sunken barge to make it easily accessible for hazardous materials recovery. Crews then rigged fuel removal lines and have recovered approximately 1,900 gallons of diesel.
