In a Thursday update, the city’s webpage for ice testing stated: “Ice testing will commence shortly. Updates will be provided every Monday once testing has begun.”
A city spokesperson added by email that updates are likely to begin “by mid-November” this year.
Residents are always advised to take care regardless of published ice thickness measurements, as the quality and depth of the ice can vary even over short distances. There’s never any guarantee that a lake is completely safe underfoot.
