WB Thorold Tunnel remains closed this morning

Still no word on when the WB Thorold Tunnel will be reopened.

On the Ministry of Transport's website, there is no date set for its reopening, the site only says that it will be closed until further notice.

MTO spokesperson Astrid Poei telling us yesterday they hoped to have it open today but there is no firm deadline.

The St. Catharines bound lanes of the tunnel have been closed for a week, after a flatbed towing an escavator scraped the walls and ceiling.

Repairs have been slow because the replacement concrete ceiling tiles had to be specially made.

We hope to get more details today on an opening date.
