The S.S. Badger Sets Sail May 6th

Posted: Updated:

The Lake Michigan carferry in Ludington announced they will be sailing once again this year.

May 6th is when the Badger will begin sailing, which is two weeks earlier than their planned date.

The carferry runs between Ludington and Wisconsin.

They were told they are allowed to sail until a final decision is made on a new permit, since the Badger's coal ash permit has expired.

The carferry will be transporting wind tower sections from Wisconsin to Michigan, where several projects are in place.
