The Eastern Upper Peninsula
Transportation Authority (E.U.PT A) of Kincheloe, Mich., recently com- pleted the replacement or overhaul of all ferry loading ramps on the St.
Mary's River between Lake Supe- rior and Lake Huron. In 1989, two loading ramps were constructed at
Detour, Mich., and one was con- structed at Drummond Island, Mich.
The new Detour/Drummond Island route is serviced by a new 24-car ferry delivered in the fall of 1989.
The new ferry ramps were de- signed by Hitch, Inc., Houghton,
Mich. The primary ramps for De- tour/Drummond are 20 feet wide by 60 feet long with a mid-span hinge.
The ramps at Neebish Island and
Sugar Island are 20 feet wide with a 30 foot long single span. The hy- draulic pump system is located in a small heated building near the ramps. Low voltage controls are located on the ramps to raise/lower or tilt the span to meet the ferry.
