Highway 17 closed for downed hydro lines


Traffic is moving again after the Ontario Provincial Police closed Highway 17 at Colton Creek Road, just west of Rolphton, for downed hydro lines across the roadway.

In their most recent update, OPP say Hydro One crews are now on scene and traffic is being let through to clear up the backlog.

The highway is expected to be closed again before 2 pm to allow Hydro One to make repairs.

The work could take up to two hours to complete. There are no local detours.
