One stretch of Highway 17 East is back open, while another part is now closed.

Ontario 511 reports Highway 17 East at Highway 630/Eau Claire Road reopened Sunday night around 8 pm.

It was closed Sunday morning because of flooding.

Flooding also forced officials to close the highway east of Mattawa in Bissett Creek just after 3 am today.

OPP say traffic is being detoured via Highways 60 and 11 (from Huntsville to the Pembroke area).
