Coast Guard monitoring ice conditions in St. Clair River

DETROIT — The U.S. Coast Guard is monitoring large quantities of ice, including several large pieces that are beginning to break away from an ice bridge located at the southern end of Lake Huron.

This has the potential to affect smaller vessels transiting the St. Clair River, Lake St. Clair and the Detroit River. All recreational boaters are advised to avoid these waterways until conditions improve.

The Coast Guard continues to monitor the water levels in both the St. Clair River and Lake St. Clair and has notified the Harsens Island Ferry of current ice conditions.

Requests for additional information can be made to the Coast Guard Sector Detroit Command Center at 313-568-9559.
