Snow and Ice Close Bluewater Bridge and Highway; 300 Cars Stranded

A long stretch of Ontario’s Highway 402 is shut down indefinitely and under a state of emergency due to heavy snowfall on Tuesday.  The snow has also led to the closure of the Bluewater Bridge, a gateway between the U.S. and Canada.
Icy and snowy conditions have Highway 402 in Ontario designated as “closed” from the Bluewater Bridge to Highway 401 in London.  The Canadian military was called in for help, with search and rescue helicopters and snowmobiles looking for stranded motorists.  Front-end loaders were also reportedly brought in to remove drifts burying the vehicles.
“We have up to 300 motorists who’ve been stranded for up to 15 hours now,” Sgt. Dave Rektor of the Ontario Provincial Police western region said Tuesday morning. “It’s still snowing heavy, nonstop dense snow. We have snow banks four and five feet high we’re trying to traverse on snowmobiles to get to those people.”
The Detroit-Windsor Tunnel is open and ready to take commercial and passenger vehicles that would otherwise use the Bluewater Bridge in Sarnia/Port Huron, according to reports.
