LAMBTON COUNTY, ON, Dec. 15 /CNW/ - The County of Lambton still remains
under a "State of Emergency" dealing with the continued fallout from
the snow storm that hit this area.
Highway 402 eastbound only has been cleared in its entirety. Traffic can now travel from the
Bluewater Bridge to Highway 401. Motorists that are using that stretch
of road are asked to drive carefully as the entire roadway is passable,
but still has icy and snow covered sections.
County Road 22/London Line is the designated Emergency Detour Route
(EDR) for traffic travelling west. It has been cleared and is passable
for traffic in both directions.
Progress continues on dealing with the issues of westbound 402 between
Nauvoo Road and Mandaumin Road. It remains closed while snow removal
and towing operations continues.
Police ask that those motorists who have vehicles stranded in that area
to remain patient. Crews are making every effort to get this stretch
of roadway opened as soon as possible. Most secondary roadways
traversing east and westbound have been ploughed and are passable.
Main roads that travel north and south are in similar condition.
Police personnel on snowmobiles and working with the Military air
