HIGHWAY 11 IS CLOSED again between Hearst and Longlac. Icy roads. Two tractor trailers rigs have taken the ditch. No serious injuries reported. Witnesses say one rig has flipped on its side and is completely blocking the highway. Ontario Provincial Police are on the scene. Heavy-haul tow trucks are being called in.

Have you guys gotten at least one non-road closed day yet since Early November?

Hoping for a green Christmas here. Looks promising.

Not closed but narrowed.... as of this afternoon WED - DEC 17 /14

Goldcorp Porcupine Gold Mines has closed the two eastbound lanes of Algonquin Boulevard East, near the Highway 655 intersection.

The lane closure is a precautionary measure while crews investigate the cause of some settling of the recently paved road.

Does anybody remember when the original end date for that project was supposed to be?
