Does anyone know the name of the tug pulling the current bridge? Loved following the progress of the previous bridge on its journey to Toronto.
Lois M brought the bridge in May and showing it still in Halifax. Could be another tug being use, but name unknown and no sign of one on its way to Toronto. There are a few tugs out there, but no name or where they are going to.

I follow it for the whole trip and left my place a few hours before it was to arrive. As with transit, took longer and made it by 30 minutes.

Edit: Lois M is currently to arrive in Quebec City anytime as a destination. No idea if it has the bridge or doing another job.

If it has the bridge, we should see it here Wed or Thurs.

As it stands at this time, Lois M cannot be bring the bridge to Toronto as it still moored in Quebec City unless there is a problem with it.

Without a name for the one that left Friday, haven't come across anything heading to Toronto other than a cargo ship entering the channel now or a tug from Hamilton out by Pickering. Very little traffic in the system.

Nothing showing up for the shipping channel in Toronto.

Beverly M and Molly M I are moored in Montreal at this time 12:40 am Wed and don't expect to see it in Toronto until Friday or Sat at this time. Depending on traffic from Montreal to Toronto, it could be here late Thurs as well on when it leaves Montreal.

Depending on construction for the road bridge for the Keating Channel is at, we may not see it delivery until spring 2022. Then there is the south Cherry St bridge to come.

With the plan now to take the Cherry St LRT to Polson Loop and no LRT bridge built for it, hope Waterfront Toronto has order that LRT bridge so it can be delivery next year than down the road. By having the LRT bridge delivery next year and ahead of the road bridge, the bridge can be floated into position like the Keating Channel at very little extra cost compare to how it will have to be place at great cost after the road bridge is place and well down the road. If down the road, Cheery St will have to be close for from a day to few days depending what option is use to place the LRT bridge.

With the push to have the New Cherry St and Commissioner St open in 2022, it still can, with the exception of the south Don of the mouth until early 2023. Going to be a bitch to get the Commissioner LRT Bridge at great cost come 2040.

According to the Port of Montreal website departure is scheduled for today: https://www.port-montreal.com/en/component/apm/vessel/10321

The times on the site don't seem correct as it should have actually departed already, but the arrival time is wrong too since it moored at 19:49. This is just a guess but they may be omitting AM/PM, in which case it would depart this evening.

EDIT: Looks like the link is broken but it showed that expected arrival was 2021-08-24 8:00 and departure for 2021-08-25 5:00

They are using the 24 hours system and 3:45 hours late departing.

The last Port and next Port is odd reading as it yet to be to Toronto to go to Halifax next. The Lois M is still in Quebec City unless there was a plan to switch tugs in Montreal that hasn't happen yet

Zoom in on the tug in Montreal and you will see the 2 tugs with a gap between them, with the gap being the barge with the bridge

For whatever reason, it has stopped again, a little west of Cornwall, just north of the eastern edge of Ile St-Regis.
