U.S. COAST GUARD

*************************
The United States Coast Guard will start breaking ice in the lower West Neebish Channel at 0800 local on Monday the 17th of March in preparation for the 2014 Shipping Season .

The U.S. Coast Guard intends to break ice in the lower end of the West Neebish Channel from Mud Lake Junction Light to the Rock Cut’s Lower Dam, which will include the destruction of the two lower Neebish Island ice bridges. 

U.S. Coast Guard officials are working with EUPTA officials to ensure the ferries are able to operate throughout this phase of the break out operation. 

The upper ice bridge located north of the ferry crossing will not be disturbed.

Recreational users of the ice should plan their activity carefully, use caution near the ice, and stay away from shipping channels.

Further inquiries can be made by phone to Sault Vessel Traffic Service at (906) 635-3232 or via email at SOOTFC@USCG.MIL.
