We have heard that the road has been closed since about 7:30 pm this evening, and as of the time of writing this article, there is no known time to reopen.

People are advised to take alternate routes if they absolutely must travel, otherwise, it is best to stay home.

Highway 102/Dawson road is notorious for becoming a hot spot for collisions during rough weather.

Drive safe, drive sober, and please don’t drive if you don’t have to.

  1. emcon is off to a bad start. 102 has been closed twice in November already and winter is just starting. Driving this highway multiple times a day I can tell you that Emcon waits far too long before sending plows or sanders out. They don’t send out a plow until the highway is heavily snow covered and driving has become treacherous. It doesn’t seem like there is any proactive maintenance. Each am around 7am the trucks are just leaving the yard on mapleward ward…. are they on a time schedule and not a snow schedule?

  2. highway 17 by shabaqua was total black ice. by bylans pit. should of closed it . I was there between 6 and 630 pm on sat 24 nov
