The first ice road of the season was opened to traffic at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, connecting the small island of Piirissaar with the Estonian mainland at Laaksaare in Tartu County.

The ice road is eight kilometers long and open to vehicular traffic between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. every day.

Vehicles with an actual mass of up to half a ton are permitted to use the ice road.

The ice road is demarcated with spruce branches, and a crossing has been built over a crack in the ice at the 5th kilometer.

Eesti Teed AS is responsible for maintenance of the Piirissaar ice road.
