Moose Cree First Nation has announced that Wetum Road connecting the James Bay coast to the Highway 11 corridor, as well as the community ice roads in Moosonee and Moose Factory will all be closing for the season. The last day for all of the roads will be tomorrow (Friday) until 5 pm.
Wetum Road is the winter road that connects Smooth Rock Falls to the north via Highway 634. The community ice roads allow residents to move to and from both Moosonee and Moose Factory. The closures will allow work crews to begin decommissioning the water crossings.
