Some cold-weather pain is skaters’ gain.

The National Capital Commission announced Monday that the stretch of the Rideau Canal Skateway between Somerset Street and Hartwells Locks will reopen Tuesday at 8 a.m.

But crews still need to keep working overnight, so stay off the ice for now, the NCC said.
