Kinda doubt it will happen they we're supposed to put a switch in immediately but it never happened. I think it was too much money for dutra and it will be cheaper to bring it in by barge.

Confirming as I drove by southbound on 101 about 4:30 I saw both 2009 and 1501 tied together at rest heading in the westbound direction at the wye.  As I was going 70 mph I did not see any cars behind but makes sense.

I was in Petaluma prior to that and there are a LOT of hoppers at both of the feed locations.

But no visible indication of biz at Dutra although the conveyor belt was running when we drove north on Thursday.  Anyone know that status?
