Highway 17A, the Kenora bypass, is closed in both directions following a multiple-vehicle collision. The Kenora OPP is asking the public to avoid the area if possible.
Local school buses KN 33, KN 39, KN 41, and KN 42 are all expecting 'considerable' delays.
At approximately 2:30 p.m. emergency crews were called to the intersection of Highway 17A and Highway 596 (the Minaki Highway). The bypass has since been closed between Hwy. 596 and Hwy 658 (the Reddit Road,) and there is no estimated time fo rwhen it will be open again.
No injuries have been reported, and further information will be released once it becomes available.
