OPP confirm that the tractor trailer has been removed from Angus Lake and that Highway 11 was reopened just after 6 pm Thursday.
The Ontario Provincial Police are warning drivers who normally use Highway 11, south of Temagami, that a portion of the road will be closed in both directions Thursday, September 13th beginning at 8 am.
Police say it’s to remove a tractor-trailer from Angus Lake following Sunday’s collision.
The closure will affect Highway 11 about 1 kilometre north of Rabbit Lake Road in Temagami.
Local residents can use the roadway to get to their homes and businesses, as long as they don’t cross the closure area.
It's not known how long the road will be closed, and the following detours will be put in place:
- If you are heading northbound on Highway 11, take Highway 63 in North Bay towards Temiscaming, Quebec, head north on Highway 101 through Quebec and west on Highway 65 East towards New Liskeard.
- If you are southbound on Highway 11 to New Liskeard Ontario, take Highway 65 East towards Notre-Dame-du-Nord, Quebec and head southbound on Highway 101 to Highway 63 into North Bay.
