Effective January 31, 2017 at 6:00 pm, the James Bay Winter Road was opened to light vehicle traffic to a maximum gross vehicle weight of 7500 kilograms from Moosonee to Attawapiskat.
Due to ongoing flooding at the Albany River North crossing, vehicles will have to use the bypass road at the crossing until the main crossing is open. We estimate that this will take place in a few days.
Please drive with caution, as there is still heavy equipment working on the road, including water trucks and graders. There are also flooding activities ongoing at the various water crossings. Please be aware and use caution when approaching heavy equipment and flooding crews.
For additional information please call 705 336 6971 or 877 336 6960
