Updated April 23 at 8:10 a.m.

Highway 17 remains closed between Mattawa and Deep River due to a washed out portion of the highway just west of Bissett Creek, the OPP tweeted Tuesday morning.

A detour is available at North Bay via HIghway 60. The highway was first closed Sunday.

The North Bay OPP said in a tweet that they've handed out several tickets to people caught driving on the closed highway.

Original story:

A major stretch of Hwy 17 has been closed until further notice due to flooding and a wash-out. 

Both directions of the highway have been closed from Banting Drive/Wylie Road in Deep River to Powell Lake Trail in Bisset Creek.

Motorists are reminded that driving on a closed highway could result in a fine of $110 and three demerit points upon conviction.
