THURSDAY MORNING UPDATE: Water release delayed by a day, so the trail closure will be in effect on Friday.
You’ll have to alter the snowmobile route you plan to take in the Cochrane area on Thursday.
Polar Bear Riders president Kenny Johnston confirms that Top A west of town and A106C will be closed. Ontario Power Generation will be releasing water on the Frederickhouse River.
Johnston expects 15 to 20 feet of water on each side of the river crossing, about a foot deep.
He hopes the closure only lasts one day, but will update. You can also keep an eye on the OFSC interactive map.
