Expect Delays On Highway 17 East


The East Algoma Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is warning area motorists to be aware of potential traffic delays during their travels on Highway 17 and Village Road, Friday, August 28, 2015 between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.. Protest activities will be occurring and may periodically delay or interrupt the normal flow of traffic in the area.

The OPP’s objective is to maintain the safe flow of traffic and, when delays occur, restore traffic flow in the safest manner possible. The OPP is also working with those who may organize protest events to provide a safe and peaceful opportunity to exercise their lawful rights while minimizing the impact on the traveling public, where possible.

Motorists should check in advance for road advisory information and monitor local media for the latest updates. The OPP appreciates everyone’s cooperation and patience during these occurrences.


  1. Here we go again, more delays and inconvenience for people, some who are elderly and sick and should not be delayed, some who have a schedule to keep.
    How this helps their cause is beyond me.
