Work was expected to begin Saturday, weather permitting, to salvage the massive cargo vessel Delta Mariner after it struck the Eggner's Ferry Bridge in Aurora Jan. 26, causing a 322-ft. span to collapse. The vessel has been anchored between the two halves of the bridge since the time of the accident. The U. S. Coast Guard announced Friday it has approved a salvage plan submitted by Foss Maritime Company, the ship’s owner.
