THUNDER BAY- The Weekend is here, and the road to the Sleeping Giant is open again. The Ministry of Transportation advises the motoring public that Highway 587 is open to one lane at Joe Creek, 17 kilometres south of Highway 11/17 (three kilometres in from the Sleeping Giant Provincial Park entrance).
Highway to Sleeping Giant Open
The road popular with thousands of Thunder Bay and Ontario tourists to the ‘toe’ of the world famous Sleeping Giant and Silver Islet is open again.
Drivers will encounter single lane restrictions controlled by flagging operations. We ask for drivers’ patience as we continue to work and remind them to obey the speed limit and flag persons through construction zones–for the safety of both workers and drivers.
For the latest info, the public can call 511, MTO’s Road Information Line to find out about current highway closures.
