Highway closure notices on this site should be time stamped. Just a thought.

Yup, timestamped......and acurate. Highway is closed from Bachewana to Wawa, not from the Soo. MTO site....check it.

Someone sleeping on the job?
The highway is still closed, and the article not corrected to say it's closed at Batchewana, not the Sault??

Time for some better communication here, don't be telling people the highway is closed at the Sault when it's not.

You have all kinds of people on the outskirts worried that they can't get in or out of town if need be for work, etc.

Just drove out to Goulais and back. Still clear sailing.
