EARLIER (Jan 11, 2017, @ 16:31) – Highway 17 from Wawa south to Batchawana has been closed. MyWawa has been told that there are a number of tractor trailers stuck on the Montreal River Hill and that the weather is continuing to detoriate.
As with all highway closures due to weather, there is no way to tell when the highway will reopen. MyWawa will monitor and update the site.
