Highway 17 is now open between Dryden and Ignace due to poor road conditions. 

The highway was closed since roughly midnight and reopened around 5:30am. 

Drivers are reminded to drive with extreme caution as a winter storm passed through Northwestern Ontario in the last couple of days. Local roads and highways are quite slick with reduced visibility in some areas. 

Motorists can expect delays near Vermilion Bay as the eastbound lane of Highway 17 will be closed for vehicle removal near Hanslip's Road and Nelson Granite. Traffic control in place.
