Coast Guard to break ice in Maumee Bay

Great Lakes Coast Guard News
DETROIT — The Coast Guard is scheduled to conduct ice-breaking operations in western Lake Erie and the Maumee Bay Channel, Monday.

The Coast Guard is advising Maumee Bay area residents that the Coast Guard Cutter Bristol Bay, a 140-foot ice-breaking tug homeported in Detroit, will be in the area for most of Monday while escorting the tug Michigan and the barge Great Lakes down the Detroit River to Toledo, Ohio.

The estimated time of arrival in Toledo is between late afternoon and evening. The vessels will be departing Toledo about 24 hours after they begin loading petroleum product at a local facility.

Any ice in the area should be considered unsafe, and the Coast Guard advises everyone to stay clear.
