SAULT STE MARIE, Mich. — The U.S. Coast Guard will continue with spring breakout operations on the St. Mary's River near Pipe and Drummond Islands, beginning at 7 a.m., Wednesday.

A U.S. Coast Guard cutter will conduct ice breaking operations to open the Pipe Island Passage, north and east of Pipe Island, and will circumnavigate Drummond Island along the International Boundary Line into the North Channel and exit via False Detour Passage.

The Coast Guard reminds all recreational ice users to plan their activities carefully, use caution on the ice, and stay away from shipping channels which are being groomed for the opening of the shipping season.
