Traffic Advisory: Hwy 11/17 and Seymour Street Intersection Reconstruction

North Bay, ON – June 24, 2020 – Due to increased traffic being experienced at the Hwy 11/17 and Seymour intersection as a result of relaxed COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, the City of North Bay is advising travelers of potential traffic disruptions in the coming weeks as reconstruction of this intersection continues.

Work at various locations within the intersection will occur over the next several weeks that may result in some lane closures to protect the travelling public and contractor’s personnel. The temporary lane closures will occur outside of the peak travelling times from 9:30am to 3:00pm and night time hours from 7:00pm to 7:00am.

Travelers should consider adding extra time to their schedule when using this intersection or take an alternate route as follows:

  • vehicles travelling northbound on King’s Hwy No 17, detour onto Hwy 94 towards Callander and then north to Lakeshore Drive and then using the City’s road network, get to their destination; or
  • vehicles travelling northbound on King’s Hwy No 17, stay on the inside lane and travel south on King’s Hwy No 11 at the over pass to Lakeshore Drive and then using the City’s road network, get to their destination;
  • vehicles travelling northbound on King’s Hwy No. 11, should take the off ramp at Lakeshore Drive and then using the City’s road network, get to their destination
  • vehicles travelling southbound should take any of the arterial roads connected to Hwy 11/17 and using the City’s road network make their way to either  King’s Hwy No. 11 or King’s Hwy No. 17

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.
