Highway 17 has reopened.

-- Original Story --

The Ministry of Transportation (MTO) reports highway 17 is closed due to a washout causing a substantial hole in the highway.  

The highway closure, which was reported at 03:43 a.m., is by Richard Lake in Kenora near distance marker 108 and stretches only within this immediate location. 

No detour is available. 

Highway 71 has now reopened after a closure earlier this morning.
