Manitoba's ice-cutters done breaking up Red River
Equipment now focusing on Icelandic, Brokenhead and Fisher Rivers
Manitoba's ice-cutting machines have finished breaking up the ice on the Red River and have moved on to the Icelandic, Brokenhead and Fisher Rivers, the province said Friday.
- Manitoba asks fishermen to remove their ice shacks
- Province beefs up Amphibex ice-breakers with re-engineered parts
The work helps prevent potential ice-jam flooding, says Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation.
The province asks people who use the rivers to avoid the big machines.
