Ice road across Lac La Biche Lake now open
The ice road across Lac La Biche Lake is now officially open. The road connects Poplar Point on the north shore to Maccagno Point (Range Road 145, off the Old Trail). The former access point at the Mission is no longer in use because of shoreline damage that creates an environmental concern.
Use of the ice road is at your own risk. The County has taken steps to clear heaves and other obstacles along the route, but conditions can change quickly. For your safety, obey the posted speed limit of 30 km/h and weight limit of 4,500 kg. Excessive speed can weaken or even break the ice ahead of your vehicle. The ice road will be closed if the County has any reason to suspect ice conditions are unsafe.
