Boat Tours Held on the MV Mississippi

NEWS

 

The Motor Vessel MISSISSIPPI - the largest diesel towboat on the Mississippi River - will be docked in Cape Girardeau this week, and is offering a free open house so that the public can tour the vessel. The MV Mississippi is 241-feet long and 58-feet wide, running on 6,300 horsepower. It's usually a towboat, but is also a passenger boat with 22 staterooms, a dining room, and conference room. Aside from moving barges the MV Mississippi holds a series of public meetings on board as well, a process unique to the Mississippi River Commission and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, that allow the public a greater voice in shaping federal policy by discussing their concerns with those individuals responsible for improving the condition of the river, fostering navigation, promoting commerce, and reducing flood risk along the watershed.

The open house is held August 14 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and August 15 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
