THUNDER BAY – ROADS UPDATE – As the wet weather moved off, warmer temperatures melting snow have caused numerous road closures across the region.

In Thunder Bay, River Street is likely to be closed for about two weeks as city crews work to fix a sinkhole that opened up on Friday.

The sinkhole was caused reportedly by a failure in the culvert that allows McVicar’s Creek to flow under the road.

City Crews have escalated the hole down to the culvert and will be working to fix the problem.

There are other sinkholes around the city to keep an eye out for while driving.
