Harsens Island ferry rate increase could come soon

CLAY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A proposed rate increase for users of the ferry to Harsens Island in Lake St. Clair could take effect as soon as June 1 after earlier delays.

The Times Herald of Port Huron reports the cost of service could increase by $1 to $8 for almost all classes of vehicles.

Champion's Auto Ferry says traffic is down and the ferry faces pressures from the cost of fuel, labor and insurance.

The increased rates were to begin as recently as May 1, but have been delayed. A final ruling is pending from the Michigan Public Service Commission.

Harsens Island is in St. Clair County's Clay Township, about 30 miles east-northeast of Detroit.
