SAULT STE MARIE, Mich. – The U.S. Coast Guard is advising Ludington, Mich., area residents who recreate on the ice that a U.S. Coast Guard cutter is scheduled to break ice, Thursday, in preparation for the transit of a barge en route to docks near the S.S. Badger.

The Tug Spartan will be facilitating the vessel’s movement, assisted by the crew of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Mobile Bay.

Recreational users of the ice should plan their activities carefully, use caution while on the ice and stay away from shipping channels and charted Lake Carriers Association (LCA) track lines.
