Road Report for Tuesday, August 20, 2019
Road conditions in the Espanola area. Photo and collage designed by Rosalind Russell
Local area roads are bare and dry.
Now that the cooler nights are here, be aware of some fog in low-lying areas, which will dissipate fairly quickly in the early morning.
Most of the resurfacing of Highway 17 has been completed between Nairn Centre and the Totten Mine turnoff.
However, the west bound passing lane near Sleepy Hollow and the passing lanes in Nairn Centre are still closed so slow down in those areas.
Major remedial work continues on a bridge near the Lorne Falls Sideroad, so be aware of a lane shift there.
Work crews are also installing guide rails along the reconstructed area.
Reconstruction work also continues on Highway 540 on Manitoulin Island
Slow down and stay safe on your morning commute.
