Cruisers and civilian vehicles were damaged in the latest, relatively short-lived Caledonia blockade, Monday.
Approximately 7:30 a.m., Tuesday, demonstrators had removed debris from the road and OPP re-opened Argyle Street South a short time later.
Police had received a report Monday that several pedestrians were standing in the middle of the roadway on Argyle Street South just north of Sixth Line, causing a safety hazard.
Demonstrators had thrown rocks causing damage to several cruisers and civilian vehicles in the area. OPP cleared the civilian vehicles and closed Argyle Street South between Braemar Avenue and Highway 6.
Demonstrators responded by dragging debris out onto the roadway.
OPP later received information that the rail tracks were blocked in the area of Sixth Line. CN Police were contacted and notified. An inspection of the rail track and control area revealed the control box was damaged and required repair.
OPP are asking anyone who may have any information to contact them at 1-888-310-1122.
