NCC temporarily closes Rideau Canal Skateway due to freezing rain and mild conditions

The National Capital Commission says it’s closing 7 kilometres of the Rideau Canal Skateway due to “adverse weather conditions.”

In a release issued Wednesday afternoon, the NCC says the stretch from Rideau Street to Dows Lake will close temporarily as of 10 p.m. on Wednesday night.

Mild weather and freezing rain is in the forecast for the next couple of days.

Re-opening time for that closed stretch is unknown and the NCC is asking everyone to keep off the ice until they officially reopen it.
