Return of S.S. Badger trips likely weeks away

If you are heading to Michigan in the upcoming weeks, be prepared to drive. The Lake Michigan Carferry, which operates S.S. Badger, updated potential passengers earlier this week after a ramp used to load and unload cars collapsed into the water last Friday in its home port of Ludington, Mich. Marine contractors were expected to begin removing the old ramp lifting equipment on Tuesday so repairs could take place. The Lake Michigan Carferry has not said when they believe the S.S. Badger will be back in service, but they are offering ticketholders an opportunity to either change their reservation or receive a refund. The S.S. Badger recently restarted its night sailing journeys between Ludington and Manitowoc earlier this month after a three-year hiatus.
