The U.S. Coast Guard will begin Lake Superior ice-breaking operations next week

The U.S. Coast Guard will begin Lake Superior icebreaking operations on March 20.

The cutters Alder and Mackinaw will enter Lake Superior around Wednesday, March 20, to begin ice-breaking for the upcoming shipping season. They will begin in Whitefish Bay, on the far eastern part of the lake, and eventually, make their way to Duluth-Superior.

The Soo Locks are scheduled to open on March 25.

  6. It will be a bummer for the ice fishing but it will be nice to see ships back on the lake. I agree with the other post. It has been a long winter. We have been spoiled for a long time.
