Ice breakers free up shipping in the nick of time

Three cutters from the US Coast Guard were involved with icebreaking operations from Sturgeon Bay to Green Bay the past week. They opened up shipping channels, which allowed for needed supplies to flow into the Port of Green Bay. That will make its way into Door and Kewaunee Counties over the next few weeks, says Director of Vessel Traffic Services Mark Gill.


It is hard to remember but three months ago, it looked like the region was set for an early onset of winter, and the port was closed in mid-December. Being able to get commerce restarted in the first half of March ensures that the shortages of a year ago will not repeat in 2020.
