Highway 11 has been closed off due to a series of crashes and inclement weather.

OPP Media Officer Stephanie Belec alerted Moose News during the afternoon Thursday of a series of crashes taking place along Highway 11.

Belec says the several crashes were due to the immense amount of snowfall having taken place through the early morning and afternoon.

She says the Highway has now been closed from just west of Hearst through to Longlac due to the deteriorating weather conditions.
