The Ministry of Transportation wishes to advise the motoring public that Highway 602 near Emo is now closed to through traffic between the Highway 11 junction and the intersection at Fisher Road.
Now that the contractor has started work at the site, located about three km south of Highway 11, it now must be fully closed to all vehicle traffic until the highway is made safe for re-opening.
During the closure, an alternate route is available via Fisher Road, Highway 613, and Highway 11.
This closure is required to ensure the safety of road users and construction workers at the site of a deteriorated concrete culvert while the contractor expedites work over the next several weeks.
The MTO apologizes for the inconvenience and urges motorists to schedule their trips to avoid the closure.
