Original Story July 1st
There are live wires that have been downed on the bridge just past Casey’s. HydroOne said it will be at least midnight before anything gets restored.
Because of this, Hwy 11 is closed both Eastbound and Westbound at the Kap bridge between Kapuskasing and Hearst until further notice.
We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
