(NIPIGON, ON) – Road conditions were just terrible around Nipigon and Red Rock lately.
Residents in the area are complaining that the roads are just terrible and there have been a number of collisions due to the poor conditions, according to those residents.
A snowplow appeared to have issues remaining on the road as well.
The vehicle was being removed from the ditch by multiple rotators that responded to the situation. A pickup truck also lost traction and slammed into the snowbank along the highway.
Emcon is the contractor that is responsible for maintaining the roads in that area. Sources in the area indicate that there was possibly a shortage of road salt for this stretch of highway, which may have contributed to the poor conditions.
Court in Geraldton was reportedly cancelled for some on Tuesday due to numerous factors, one being road conditions.
