Traffic Delays Possible this Week

OPP Suggest Pre-Planning and Appreciate Patience

ORILLIA, ON, Jan. 15, 2013 /CNW/ - Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) are once again advising the motoring public to be aware of potential traffic delays when undertaking travel planning in the days ahead.

Protest activities may delay the normal flow of traffic on highways, including 400-series highways, and on other transportation corridors throughout Ontario beginning tomorrow.  The OPP is working with those involved to minimize the impact on the traveling public and the movement of goods.

The public is advised to check ahead for road advisory information and to monitor local media for the latest updates and alternate routes.

The main objective for police during these situations is to maintain public safety and to restore the orderly flow of traffic and other transportation networks as necessary in the safest manner possible. The OPP and its partners appreciate everyone's patience in dealing with traffic and other delays respectfully.
