Previous 6:30am

SaultOnline.com has confirmed that Highway 17 east from Sault Ste. Marie to Bruce Mines is currently closed due to weather.

A band of freezing drizzle has moved into the area east of the city thus forcing the closure of the highway in both direction.


  1. Coming home from Echo Bay to the Sault on the new highway, it was fine. I just got home about 15 minutes ago. But they have the new highway closed if you are heading east from the soo.

    • Unless is specifies then it is both highways. One or the other is usually closed due to accidents both will close due to weather
