The Tug Erica Kobasic will be conducting ice breaking operations between Sturgeon Bay and the Marinette/Menominee harbor break wall in order to take a barge into Marinette/Menominee Harbor. The Tug Erica Kobasic will then depart Marinette/Menominee Harbor (light tug) and proceed to Escanaba. This operation will likely occur between Monday afternoon, January 28, and Wednesday, January 30.
All ice fishermen should remove their ice shacks and equipment from these areas. Snowmobile, All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) operators, and other recreational users of the ice should avoid shipping channels, plan their activity carefully, and use caution near this area of operation.
