USCG Plans Ice Breaking On St. Mary's River, 2 Neebish Ice Bridges To Be Destroyed

Posted: Updated:

The United States Coast Guard is preparing for the upcoming 2014 shipping season. 

USCG will begin breaking ice on St. Mary's River in the lower West Neebish Channel on Monday, March 17 at 8:00 AM.

They will break ice from Mud Lake Junction Light to the Rock Cut's Lower Dam. The Coast Guard will destroy two lower Neebish Island ice bridges.  The upper ice bridge north of the ferry crossing will be left intact.

USCG is working with EUPTA to ensure ferries are able to operate throughout the breaking. 

The Coast Guard warns recreational users of the ice should plan activity carefully, use caution and stay away from shipping channels. 

If you have questions, please call the Sault Vessel Traffic Service at 906-635-3232 or email them at SOOTFC@USCG.mil.
