The U.S. Coast Guard announced it will begin ice breaking operations in the waters of Green Bay on Thursday. Recreational users are cautioned to plan activities carefully and stay away from shipping channels and the charted lake Carriers Association track lines.

Ice breaking efforts will expand and increase in frequency after Thursday as ice conditions and demands of shipping require. This will include all navigable waters in and around the ports of Green Bay, Sturgeon Bay, Marinette, Menominee and Escanaba.

Ice breaking will impact the Fox River and lower Green Bay, Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal, Little Bay De Noc, and the entrance channel into Marinette and Menominee.
