More delays next week involving the blasting of rock near the intersection of Seymour and Highway 11/17.

The contractor told the City of North Bay that more blasting will occur on the southbound lanes that may cause lengthy delays.

To minimize the disruption to the traffic, the blasting and hammering will continue to take place between 9:00am and 3:00pm. The contractor anticipates that the work will last until Thursday, and they will reassess at that time.

During this period, travelers are advised to anticipate adding times to their commute.

The City of North Bay, MTO and Contractor are aware of and appreciate the need to maintain traffic through the Hwy 11/17 and Seymour Street corridors but the necessary work must be completed responsibly and safely at all times.
