The Trent-Severn Waterway is slated to open today, a week later than planned, but it won’t be accessible locally for now.
Parks Canada says increased rain over the past weekend, combined with more rain in the upcoming forecast, means the waterway will have to be opened in stages.
For now all locks from the Murray Canal, including locks one in Trenton through 19 in Scotts Mills are closed.
Locks 20 and 21 in Peterborough are open, but locks 23 through 27 are closed.
The rest of the locks, including number 28 in Burleigh Falls through to number 45 in Port Severn are open, with Parks Canada staff monitoring conditions to make changes as they can.
Parks Canada says the most up-to-date lock opening information can be found via its Trent-Severn Boater Info Twitter account.
