...Highway 17 just north of the picturesque city with the big goose is closed both ways....its been washed out.
If there is a time for a national roads strategy, it is now.
Who knows how long its going to take to rebuild this road and the associated costs.
This happens all the time out here. 2 years ago, the TCH heading into Medicine Hat was washed out adding 300 km's to the trip between Swift Current and Medicine Hat for weeks.
Not to mention the numerous times during every single winter the TCH is closed for hours, sometimes days at a time due to avalanches in the Rogers Pass.--
I'm a man, but I can change. If I have to. I guess.
