Ice Continues To Slow Ship Traffic

Vessel traffic continues to move at a snails pace through the ice in lower Lake Huron and the St. Clair River.

Canadian Coast Guard Spokesperson Carol Launderville says so far this year, they've provided 125 ship escorts throughout the Great Lakes.

Launderville says residents checking out conditions beneath the Blue Water Bridge may not notice much ice accumulation, due to a build up of ice in Lake Huron just north of the entrance into the St. Clair River.

The canadian coast guard ships Griffon and Samuel Risley were working in Lake Huron Tuesday.

Launderville says a U.S. Coast Guard cutter was also assisting vessels locally.
