Starting at noon today Hwy 17 will closed for about 18 km in both directions south of Wawa (from Hwy 101 to Frater Rd-Labelle TWP). The closure is expected to last for about 48 hours as MTO carries out an emergency culvert replacement.
A detour is in place for Highway 17 traffic via Highway 101 from Wawa to Chapleau and Highway 129 to Thessalon. Detour signs will be posted.
MTO suggests that long distance truck traffic could take Highway 11 from North Bay to Nipigon during this time.
