Northern Ontario road repairs progressing after Wawa washout
from Metro News
The mayor of a northern Ontario town where a section of the Trans-Canada Highway was washed away by heavy rain says it should be partly reopened within days. Wawa Mayor Linda Nowicki said it's expected the southbound stretch of Highway 17 to Sault Ste. Marie will be fully reopened soon, although one lane is expected to be open to emergency traffic. Northbound lanes of the highway could remained closed for another week as crews repair 15-metre holes in the road. She said the town itself is secure, but that officials didn't have a sense of just how much of a toll the rainstorm took on the area's road network.
