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.
