SUPERIOR, Wis. (WSAU) - A 20-million dollar upgrade for a Superior Harbor dock is on hold. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources wants more information before it can approve the project.

If approved, the upgrades would refurbish a dock for Elkhorn Industries to allow shipment of crude oil from Canada and North Dakota to the eastern United States refineries.

Lyman Welch of the Alliance for the Great Lakes recently told Wisconsin Public Radio he would like to see the DNR do a more complete assessment of the project, and include the risks of shipping crude oil on the Great Lakes.
