Haldimand OPP is warning area motorists to be aware of potential traffic delays in Caledonia due to ongoing blockades affecting the Highway 6 by-pass and surrounding roadways.
Highway 6 by-pass between Argyle Street South and Greens Road in Caledonia is closed so surrounding roadways will see an increase in traffic flow. The OPP is asking motorists to be patient, plan ahead and obey speed limits on all roadways.
Have a good day folks.
The following is part of the OPP’s explanatory statement, word for word:
Several members of the OPP Provincial Liaison Team are engaged with demonstrators and open dialogue is continuous and ongoing. The OPP will continue to follow its Framework for Police Preparedness For Indigenous Critical Incidents which provides guidance for a measured and sensitive response to these events. Our primary goal is to preserve the peace and maintain a safe environment for everyone involved.
The OPP’s objective is to maintain the safe flow of traffic and, when delays occur, restore traffic flow in the safest manner possible. The OPP is also working with those who may organize protest events to provide a safe and peaceful opportunity to exercise their lawful rights while minimizing the impact on the traveling public, where possible.
Motorists should check in advance for road advisory information and the latest updates on OPP Twitter @OPP_WR.
