Road closure in Niagara Falls today
Drivers in Niagara Falls will have to detour around the railway tracks on Drummond Road today.
Work on the CN Rail crossing means Drummond will be closed from Gallinger Street/Portage Road to Morrison Street to traffic until 6:00 this evening.
So expect long lineups on Dorchester Road as motorists wind their way around the closure.
Traffic on both Dorchester and Drummond has been heavy because of the ongoing closure of the Highway 420 westbound on ramp.
The ramp is scheduled to reopen November 17th.
IceDogs first year forward Philip Tomasino has been selected to represent Canada at the World Under 17 Challenge in Dawson Creek and Fort St. John B.C. A total of 66 CHL players will be divided into three teams wearing Canada's colours from November 5-11.
Trailing 4-1 after one, the IceDogs scored three unanswered in the second then held off a furious Erie attack in the third before falling 5-4 in overtime. The Dogs picked up a possible 7 of 8 points, completing a string of four consecutive road games.
Johnny Corneil scored a pair of goals and Ondrej Machala netted the game winner with 3:15 left as the IceDogs won 3-1 in Guelph. With a record of 6 and 2, Billy Burke's team has won three straight on the road.
