January 18, 2020 – Winter Storm Update #5

THUNDER BAY – WEATHER – The Winter Storm Warning has ended for Thunder Bay.

Environment Canada says there is still some snow to come.

Highway 17 remains closed from Wawa to Sault Ste Marie.

The task of cleaning up the snow now begins. Thunder Bay Roads Crews will start work early in the morning according to Roads Manager Brad Adams. The crews all timed out at about 2:00 PM and need rest. Meanwhile, many roads and sidewalks remain unploughed. This is an area the City of Thunder Bay needs to look at. The roads being left untouched for the entire evening are not making it easy for people to get around.
