Left - The deck failure caused a full closure of Hwy 11 between North Bay and New Liskeard for several weeks. No practical alternate routes were available in Ontario to bypass the damaged bridge, so traffic was re-routed through Quebec until a temporary bridge was installed. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

Right - Only five days after the failure on January 14th, construction of the new temporary bridge was already well underway. In the background, a bulldozer grades a causeway to carry a temporary Hwy 11 Bridge across the Montreal River. See an Enlarged Photo Here.

While the passage across the dam could be made on foot in about 1 minute, the distance by car from the south end of Latchford to the north end of Latchford via the detour through Quebec was roughly 370 km. See an Enlarged Photo Here.
