MARINETTE (WLUK) -- A section of the Menominee River is scheduled to be closed to boaters Saturday while a Navy ship is launched at Marinette Marine.

County emergency management officials say the Boom Landing in Marinette and the River Park (Mystery Ship) ramp in Menominee, Michigan will close from midnight until 5 p.m. All boats, including kayaks and canoes, will be barred from the U.S. Coast Guard's marine safety zone, which is an area between Nestegg Marine and the east end of KK Integrated Logistics’ dock wall.

Fincantieri Marinette Marine is launching LCS-17, the future USS Indianapolis, on Saturday.
