An ice jam on the lower St. Clair River has shut down the Bluewater Ferry, in Sombra. The Bluewater Ferry currently operates two vessels, the Daldean of Chatham and the Ontamich. The Daldean of Chatham is larger and can carry 12 car equivalents or two semi-trailer trucks, while the Ontamich, launched 1939, is capable of ferrying 9 car equivalents or one semi-trailer truck. The two ferries are seen at the dock, Wednesday, Jan 8, 2014.
