Icebreaking work is expected clear the way for ferry trips to Mackinac Island from St. Ignace as well as Great Lakes shipping.

The Cheboygan Daily Tribune reports the U.S. Coast Guard has warned people to clear Moran Bay of ice fishing shanties and recreational equipment.

Icebreaking operations are expected to be undertaken by the cutter Katmai Bay.

Warnings are expected next week for the opening of the South Channel of the Straits of Mackinac, which is needed for Great Lakes shipping.
