River conditions and water levels along the Nechako River and its confluence with the Fraser River remain stable.
The head of the ice has moved upstream along the Nechako River and beyond city limits from its previous position at Pharoah Road.
Cottonwood Island Park and the Heritage River Trail from the Cameron Street Bridge to Kiwanis Park are closed to the public following the sighting of people on the ice on December 24. Signage and barricades have been erected at the entrance to the boat and canoe launch parking lots, the Replica Bridge, and along the Heritage River Trail. Over the holiday weekend, City staff noted the barricades were moved and vehicles had driven into the closed parking lots. The public is advised that venturing out onto the river ice is an extreme hazard and are asked to refrain from entering the park until further notice.
Conditions will continue to be monitored throughout the day by city crews and the Prince George Fire Rescue Service.
