IRCA: Ice Conditions Update IW


Sorry for the delay in sending the attached update out, was on the road all day yesterday and had very limited access to internet.

Only significant change since last night is Dresden Island has lifted their helper boat requirement for north bound cuts on a case-by-case basis.  They have seen traffic increase in their upper pool to help break up the ice in the channel and get it flowing again.


Thank you,
