Barge Terminal on the Illinois River

Illinois & Michigan Oil, LLC has recently announced its plan to build a barge terminal on the south bank of the Illinois River east of Seneca, Illinois. The project would include a 600 foot wall, 20 mooring pins and needed dredging.

Before the project can begin, the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers will undertake an extensive review of the project. Needless to say, multiple local residents are opposed to the project
