DETROIT — The Coast Guard is advising Maumee Bay Area residents that the Coast Guard Cutter Bristol Bay is scheduled to conduct ice-breaking operations in western Lake Erie and the Maumee Bay Channel on Thursday.
The cutter will escort the tug Michigan from the Detroit River to Toledo, Ohio. The estimated time of arrival in Toledo is between the early afternoon and the early evening.
Any ice in this area should be considered unsafe, and the Coast Guard advises everyone to stay away from the area.
For additional information contact Lt. Justin Westmiller, Coast Guard Sector Detroit public affairs officer at 313-701-6016.
The ice on the bay isn't safe...don't go on it!
