A northern Ontario bridge has been closed indefinitely, police said on Sunday.
“The newly built Nipigon River Bridge is on the Trans Canada Highway (the only road between western and eastern Canada in that part of the country),” says reader Terry Homeniuk. “The only way around is to go through the States between Sault Ste. Marie and Winnipeg.”
“My first thought was, Canada is cut in half,” Nipigon, Ontario, Mayor Richard Harvey told online news site TB News Watch. “My second thought was, how can we get traffic moving as quickly as possible again?”
Community centers have been opened for stranded travelers.
