November 14 – Update on Highway 61 Closure

Road Closure

THUNDER BAY — The Ministry of Transportation wishes to advise that in addition to the regular nightly closures, Highway 61 between Broadway Avenue and Neebing Avenue/Princess Street, will be closed on Friday, November 16 at 10:00 pm until Monday, November 19 at 6:30 am.  A marked detour will be provided from Highway 61, from Neebing Avenue to Broadway Avenue and back to Highway 61 in both directions.

The highway closures are necessary to complete structural waterproofing and paving while ensuring the safety of road users and workers while construction work is underway.

We apologize for the inconvenience and urge motorists to schedule their travel to minimize any delays.  Motorists are reminded to obey and follow all traffic signage and flag persons for the safety of both workers and drivers.
