A heavy snowfall has caused very slippery roads, which has led to the closure of Highway 17.

Ontario Provincial Police have closed the highway from the Manitoba border east to Shabaqua corners. The closure is in effect for roughly 600 kilometres of highway.

There is no word on when the highway will reopen.
