Provincial Road 312 to Ingolf is Open

Posted on: July 14, 2016  |  

The province has reopened Provincial Road 312 from Highway 44 to the Ontario border for the first time in almost three weeks.

Officials advise caution, because there is still water over the road in some places.

PR 312 flooded and washed out in several places when 136 mm of rain fell in the south Whiteshell in two hours overnight on June 24.

The road provides access to the south side of Caddy Lake, to McDougall’s and Big Island landings on West Hawk Lake, and to the Ontario village of Ingolf.

Meanwhile, officials said that an Amphibex will remain on Caddy Lake until at least Friday afternoon. It has dredged and removed 30 truckloads of debris from the lake since arriving last Friday, much of it so-called land bogs that broke free when the lake flooded. The province said that water is flowing freely from Caddy Lake into South Cross Lake through the tunnel beneath the railway tracks at the north end of Caddy.

Most provincial trails remain closed, including the Mantario and McGillivray Falls trails.
